Safaricom CEO Mr Peter Ndegwa has been put on the spot by Central Organization of Trade Union (COTU) for allegedly frustrating more than six thousand workers. According to a letter written by COTU, workers have been told to re_apply for their positions.
COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has also rebuked the act. According to him, it is unacceptable for Safaricom to come up with new models of management that would end up affecting the lives and livelihoods of many. Therefore, as COTU, they are opposed to such models considering they go against ILO conventions on protection of jobs.
COTU also added that its wrong for Safaricom to seek to maximise their profits by frustrating their workers. They urged the company to protect the rights of their workers because they help them get the profits.
They also added that if Mr Ndegwa doesn't stop that, they will urge board of directors and shareholders to relieve him his duties because he is trying to execute poor managerial skills.
