GPEU wins UNI Freedom from Fear Award

 

Grameen Phone Employees Union (GPEU), the Telenor subsidiary in Bangladesh, started its journey in 1996 and quickly rose to become the country’s largest corporate entity. Despite a stable profit curve, Grameen Phone’s Management undertook various cost cutting initiatives and neglected the rights of workers to have decent work. This was boldly carried out by the Management who infringed local laws when it failed to share 5% of company profits with its employees. In addition, yearly increment of the employees fell below the country’s inflation rate and long contractual periods deprived workers from receiving the same basic benefits as permanent employees.

  Following GP’s unilateral announcement of 250 job cuts in May 2012 where retrenchment laws were infringed, GPEU launched a campaign, “Break the silence, get organised and form a union.”
