Not less than 54 power engineers across the country have been relieved from their duties by an indigenous telecommunication company, Globacom.
The sack letter reads, “This serves to inform you that your services are no longer required by Globacom Limited,”
“Consequently, you are advised to report to the Human Resources Manager, Globacom Manpower Services Limited the outsourcing company, with immediate effect.
“You are also expected to hand over all Company property (including SIM Card, Company ID etc) issued to you during the course of your services with us.
“We wish you all the best in your future endeavors”, it added.
Some of the affected members of staff expressed dissatisfaction over the new development. “I can’t believe it is real; being told my services are no longer required without explicit reason. I am still in shock, a staff said,”
“I really cannot believe I was sacked without reason, for someone like me who have managed about 150 power stations for more than two years now, to be sacked in this manner is unacceptable.”
“This is part of the oppressive and exploitative system in Globacom. They just decided to drop us to cover up their mess”, he lamented.
