June 20, 2017 – Berger Paints Nigeria Plc Lay Off All Employee For Refusing To Call Off Strike, Asks Interested Worker To Reapply For Job
Berger Paints has laid off its entire workforce following a 2-week strike.
We learnt on Monday that the company took the risky decision because its appeal to the workers to return to work was rebuffed.
The workers went on strike after the company stopped their gratuity payment.
They wanted their gratuity payment added back to their salary, a request the company didn’t agree to.
Berger Paints then fired its entire workforce and urged all employee interested in working with the company to reapply.
