Workers Give MTN Authorities 14 Days towards Fulfillment of Welfare Needs

The Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria have warned a 3-day strike in the telecom sector.

The Nigerian Telecommunications Trade Union has given MTN a 14-day ultimatum to attend to their needs. The Nigerian Trade Union under the aegis of the PTECSSAN have warned the MTN senior staff association of industrial action upon the non-completion of certain welfare conditions.

You may recall that sometimes in 2019, a similar ultimatum was issued but for the timely intervention of the Honorable Minister of Labour and Productivity, the planned action did not take place.

Just as it was in that year, the company continues to remain adamant in listening to the cry and demand of its workers, who are members of our union.

As daunting as those issues raised back then were, it was the firm belief of our union that the collective bargaining agreement, if negotiated in good faith and signed off by both parties, would go a long way in addressing the concerns of the workers in the organisation.

Unfortunately, the company has remained adamant, insisting that all the workers’ conditions of service as stated in the company’s policy must remain so and cannot be negotiated. This negates the agreement they hitherto signed at the Ministry of Labour to fully negotiate the workers’ condition of service.”
