Representatives of NagaWorld’s union on Friday submitted a letter to the Arbitration Council rejecting its refusal last week to consider the demands of workers looking to counter the casino company’s mass layoff.
The Arbitration Council on Friday rejected consideration of the demands of 373 laid-off NagaWorld workers who had sought to counter the casino company’s mass layoff strategy.
The tripartite meeting came after NagaWorld workers, including union leaders, in April went through an unsuccessful first stage of negotiations with company representatives. Earlier this month, workers filed a complaint with the Ministry of Labour seeking reinstatement of the workers marked for layoff.
A wide assortment of workers’ rights and civil society organizations issued a joint statement Thursday rejecting the ongoing mass layoff of NagaWorld employees and labelling the downsizing as a clear attempt to bust the casino company’s union.
NagaWorld workers, including top leaders of the company’s union, have officially filed a complaint with the Ministry of Labour seeking intervention as casino management pushes ahead with the mass layoff of more than 1,300 workers.
