Citycell staff assured of paying dues
The assurance came from the mobile company's Chief Technology Officer(CTO) Mahfuzur Rahman on Thursday, said Ashraful Karim, president of Employees' Union of Citycell, Ashraful said: "Officially we have placed our demand before the management of the country's oldest mobile phone operation today. In response, the CTO has assured us to pay all dues as early as possible. The official requested us to wait till October 31.” After the shutdown of Citycell's operation by Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) on October 20, the mobile operator moved Appellate Division seeking a stay order on the order and the court fixed October 31 for the hearing. The BTRC adopted the action as the company failed to pay outstanding government dues of Tk477 crore. Later, its employees have taken to streets demanding their salary arrears and compensation, but their calls went unheeded. Earlier, State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Tarana Halim opined that it was Citycell's responsibility to clear the dues of its employees. During the closure, the company had a total of 430 permanent staff. Most of them remained unpaid for the last four months while officials at the managerial and executive level had not received bonuses on the last two Eids, sources told the Dhaka Tribune. Even some employees have not been paid for 14 months, the sources added. The BTRC, in a public notice on July 31, asked Citycell subscribers to shift to other operators by August 16. Later the deadline was extended to August 23.
