See Why These 160 Nigerians Were Sacked By Ericsson And Replaced Them With Indians

160 Nigerians have been relieved from their jobs at Ericsson Nigeria, the local subsidiary of the global telecommunications solutions provider.

According to PUNCH, it was gathered that disengagement, which takes effect on Sunday, December 4, 2016, affected 55 full-time employees of the company.
ericsson-621x414Sources in the company say some workers were laid off in July when the offshoring (the practice of a company in one country arranging for people in another country to do work for it) of jobs to India began.

A copy of the disengagement letter to the permanent workers signed by the Managing Director of the company, Johan Jemdahi, and obtained by our correspondent, reads:

“Please be informed that effective December 4, 2016, your position has been declared redundant. We thank you for all your past services to Ericsson. Further information about the redundancy benefits will be communicated to you before the actual termination date.”

One of the affected workers said that the company was offering the jobs, which involved the monitoring of MTN masts and networks in the country, to Indians at reduced costs.
