In the meantime, the Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria has issued a 14-day ultimatum to telecoms giant, MTN, to stop what they term unfair labour practices.

A long list of alleged industrial malpractices now stands between South Africa telecom firm MTN and one of the most influential unions in the sector.

For members of the Private telecommunications and communications Senior Staff association, two weeks is all that MTN has to address discriminatory remuneration, abuse of expatriate quota policy, No exit package structure for long term staff, an increasing spate of precarious work, restrictive career path as well as apartheid conditions of service.

According to the MTN, a ‘people first’ culture that empowers its employees, values inclusivity and hard work have been instilled to promote responsibility for its customers and communities.(Still Picture)
