Globacom Finally Responds To Allegation it Sacked 90 Married Female Staff

Following allegations of discrimination, Telecommunication company, Globacom has released an official statement addressing a report allegedly from one of its married female staff that the it sacked none less than 90 married women.

According to the unnamed aggrieved staff, affected by the purge, in a bid to restructure the company, the management laid the staff off because they were married and Mike Adenuga does not want married women in his company anymore.

However, the company has released a statement on Twitter to debunk the claims;
“Globacom has in the recent past let go of employees, both male and female, married and single, due to performance issues. It is not true that this was restricted to married women alone.
The letter in circulation is a forged document. Globacom has not issued any such letter to anyone.
Globacom upholds gender equality irrespective of marital status and promotes equal opportunities for the growth and personal development of all staffs.”

Here’s a post from one of the sacked female staff …

”I received a rude shock from the company I have served diligently for 13 years yesterday. I, alongside almost 90 other married women were laid off simply because we are married and Dr. Mike Adenuga does not want any married woman in Globacom (Gloworld friendship centre).

I was laid off a company I dedicated my time & energy to, working tirelessly and always dedicated to my job giving my 200%.

My family & friends would always say if I had a cut, my blood will be “green”. Some of you would wonder what I was doing in Globacom for 13 good years, I will give you an insight of my story.

I joined the company a vibrant 22 year old, freshly out of school graduate. I have worked with dedication, total commitment and loyalty. I can conveniently say I rose through the ladder being an outstanding staff and got whatever due given to such persons.

Not a single one of the several bosses I have worked with can give negative report about me. I have trained several staff on the job and can proudly say that i was a good leader as I was a follower.

So yes, I was not stagnant (considering that the company has no coherent organizational structure) and had every reason to believe that hard work & dedication pays until Globacom said otherwise.

We were replaced with males (some of whom have not earned the positions) single ladies (who have neither earned nor have any knowledge about the job) and newly recruited staff who are by the way poorly paid all in a bid to get rid of us.

How can experience be thrown away because of a so called new structure? How does a marital blessing with the gift of children suddenly become a disability to work?

I’m not certain there is anyone that wishes for their child, sister, friend or even herself to be unmarried and not have children. This act is a discrimination against gender and human rights to work.

We were laid off with absolutely nothing in form of compensation for what they have done! We were used and thrown away with only one month salary in lieu which they promised to pay yesterday but have obviously failed to as usual.

It is only in Globacom that such injustice can be done & feel “they” will get away with it. Please we need justice over the matter, kindly forward to as many of your contacts until justice prevails, this cannot be swept under the carpet! Thank you.”
