MTN NG Sacks Close To 300 Workers

South African telecommunication giant, MTN, on Friday sacked 280 of its employees in Nigeria, The downsizing affected around 15% of the organization’s whole Nigerian workforce. 

Acccording to sources,Those influenced by the move incorporate around 200 perpetual employees and around 80 contract staff crosswise over different frameworks, extending from new graduates to senior supervisors.. 
Quite a large number of those sacked put in up to 15 years with the organization having joined the telecomm company as it opened its business in Nigeria in 2001. 

Sources said affected workers were given a horrid severance of 75% of their gross monthly income increased by the quantity of years with the organization. 

“Given that the organization is around 16 years of age in Nigeria, the severance bundle brought torment and discontent among the affected staff,” one source said. 

“With the result structure, senior managers with 15 years of administration were left

with about N15 million. A large portion of the staff got under N5 million.”


MTN Nigeria recorded almost $1 billion in benefit in 2016. Be that as it may, the telecoms firm was intensely fined by the Nigerian government for neglecting to detach 5.2 million unregistered subscribers. 

The representative for the organization, Funso Aina, couldn’t be reached for comments on Monday. 

Be that as it may, a source acquainted with the most recent scaling down said 200 of those affected had before consented to leave the organization deliberately. 
The source said the sackings were therefore of “the changing elements of the telecoms business as of late”. 

The source said the organization presented the willful severance plot, VSS, to give a window to one week in April, for people who have served in MTN for a long time or more to take up. 
The individuals who chosen to leave under the VSS were to be paid what might as well be called their three weeks net compensation for every year worked with MTN. 

“What it means is that on the off chance that one worked in MTN for a long time, one would be paid three weeks of their gross pay rates times five,” the source said. 

In the end, every one of the 280 staff were withdrawn under the VSS and paid their advantages, the source said.
