Nepal Telecom (Ntc) trade union has called the attention of Government for the difficult situation in the company. They also blamed Government’s carelessness for the setback in the company.
Nepal Telecom Workers Union (NTCWU) has provided an attention letter to the Minister of Communication and Information technology (MOCIT) on Nov 23, 2018. The letter criticizes for creating instability in the company with the absence of Managing director. The MD position of Nepal Telecom (Ntc) is vacant from long time after Government sacked Mrs. Kamini Rajbhandari.
Ntc has already moved ahead with the criteria and TOR for the appointment of MD whereas there is no progress now for the MD appointment process so far. So, the union has asked to free the company from any political interference.
They also accuse the government for the delay in 4G and FTTH project, update of Employees regulations, and Employees growth. Union has also demanded for the board of directors to be independent for the regular functioning of the company.
Union has also urged the Government to act on the issue raised. Otherwise, they threaten to go for strikes if their demands are not taken seriously.
