PNG Communication Workers Union to present another petition

The PNG Communication Workers Union (PNGCWU) are still adamant in their stand and will be presenting another petition to the government tomorrow after the recent response from the the prime minister didn't go down well with the union.

Among their concerns that will be included in the petition is the merger of Telikom, Dataco and Bmobile, which the PNGCWU President Mr. Nug Mamtirin said will result in negative effects on the service to the people.
"We don't want the merging of three entities because it will allow for monopoly and killing the players coming into the market, that is why we are asking what is the motive behind this merging," he said.

Another concern that was raised regarding the merger is the job security for the Telikom PNG staff. Mr. Mamtirin said the merger will also result in reduction staff number and that means workers will loss their jobs.
Mr. Mamtirin added that there is no need for a merger to improve on service, but to appoint good qualified people to top management positions.
