Berger paint sacks all its staff…

Paint manufacturing company, Berger Paints, today June 19th sacked all members of its staff. The mass sack comes after a 2-week strike action. The workers had embarked on strike over the new living wage policy of the company where none of them would be entitled to gratuity upon retirement and what was supposed to be gathered as their gratuity overtime, would now be added to their monthly salary.

The new policy was said to have been implemented in 2015 but most of the workers only got to know this year as they were meant to believe it was a salary increment.

They then decided to embark on a strike. After unfruitful consultations with the leaders of the workers union, the management wielded the big stick today by firing all of them and asked those still interested in keeping their jobs to reapply.
