National Computer Board Employees Union President Suspended

Must Read

The President of the National Computer Board Employees Union (NCBEU), Bonomally Ram, has been suspended as a system analyst in the parastatal.

His suspension came into effect immediately after he wrote a letter to the management urging them to respect the health protocol in place at the NBC. Two other employees were also called upon to provide written explanations to management regarding the matter. The matter was reported to the State and Other Employees Union

In a letter sent by the president of the State and Other Employees Federation (SEOF), Radhakrishna Sadien, to the management, he stressed that this was an act of intimidation against the provisions of the Worker’s Right Act.

The federation views this situation with serious concern as the above letter has been issued immediately after a letter has been sent by the President of the NCBEU to the Director of the NCB regarding non-compliance of sanitary protocol following a positive case of Covid-19 of the mother of one of the Managers of the NCB,” he said in a letter to Labour Minister Soodesh Callichurn. The NCB’s action in this case is reprehensible because he was not given an opportunity to explain himself before endorsing the suspension.

In debarring Mr Bonomally of his rights to be heard before any interdiction, the NCB has acted against the provisions of the Employment Relations Act and the Employment Rights Act. On the other hand, two other officers of the NCB have received letters of explanation and their reply would be forwarded to the NCB soon,” the unionist wrote. According to him, this suspension goes against the provisions of the Employment Relations Act and the Employment Rights Act. “This arbitrary decision of the Management of the NCB has accordingly been done with a view to intimidate and harass the president of NCBEU“, the SEOF President underlines. The SEOF president is therefore calling on Minister Callichurn to take a stand on this matter.
