Postal Agency Suspends 124 Employees, Reshuffles Many

Daily Monitor

By Yonas Abiye
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia -
The Ethiopian Postal Service Agency has this week suspended over 124 and reshuffling 870 employees from its main office in Addis Ababa and the regions, The Daily Monitor has learned.

Most of the workers involved are janitors, messengers and labor workers who were suspended for performance reasons, or absence from duty, or luck of education.

As regards to the janitors, the agency had to lay of its staff as it has recently hired the service to a private company.

In a letter posted on the notice board seen by The Daily Monitor, all cleaners were informed to contact the company to secure employment afresh.

The suspended, the majority of which are messengers and laborers are to register for other alternative jobs such as parking, waiters in cafeterias, the letter orders.

One of the janitors, a mother of five, on condition of anonymity said she learned of her suspension suddenly and with out any early notice.

She said she did not know how she will be able to support herself and family, now that she had no job.

"We have been told that we may join the new company they gave our jobs to. How can we have security in that new company we don't know when we did not get it from the very organization for which we have been working for years," she lamented.

The reshuffle involves officials from the lower level to senior officials who have been assigned to different regional offices.

Johny Ayele, Documentation and Communication Officer with the Agency, said factors like educational qualification, work experience and personal code of conduct were taken in to consideration in reshuffling those concerned.

He said the decision was the result of a 14 months study and appraisal and was done with out any prejudice and any harm to the rights and privileges of the employees on whom he said "appropriate" measures were taken.

I think there are not new matters happen for such the lowest positions.And also the main problems are which they are uneducated to find alternative jobs.

So, there must be jobs security.

They are not loyal to TPLF or may be they elected the opposition during the May election. In dictatorship anything can happen, not only dismissal from job but also being killed. Ethiopians should be prepared for the worst.

Go to each and every financial, political, security, Military and social activities, all of them are occupied and controlled from top by TPLF and supporters with Tigry Origin.

The postal office is now became the latest target. Using structural policy to cover their secret policy in order to Tigres being employed and benefited from the Office. The rest of the Ethiopian people have to watch them when they are acting as kings and queens in the country belongs to all Ethiopians.

Had this been in any democratic country like United Kingdom there would have been a public outcry - unions have more right here and no responsible company can play with people life like this.
Why don’t the government then suspend all armies for luck of education? You can sue them because they run courts. I must ask where the justice is.

Seble, Good question
“who is the contractor?”

You know the only way we could find out…
When another party is free to run a free election and take out dirts and once taking govenment work to improve.

Well it is time to stand up for
free election and true democracy!

New year lift up your “V” finger and show meles you want hones govenment and elected Govenment!

Time to time i read your idiotic comments, always blame the government mentality,for your information,in the real world people have to perform as well as expected,but people like you who are a menace to society only know one thing only,which is theft and hand-outs what makes you qualiffied to critisize the government or any company how they run their buisness,you can’t under perform and expect job security,you sir need to go back to hasseling,stealing and embezelling some one else’s money,leave real people to deal with real problems.

It is so sad that some have to go through this. I understand it is not easy to loose a job. I also understand that this is necessary to bring a change in the efficiency of the postal services. In fact, not just post office, many service organizations in Ethiopia need a change. To bring that change, some unpleasant things (like lay of) will definately happen and hurt some.
