Staff of merged telecom companies Tigo and Airtel have been asked to reapply for their jobs a day after the firms morphed into AirtelTigo, Starr News has learnt.
Workers who will not be retained after the screening process will receive a cumulative of their three months’ salary multiplied by the number of years they have worked with the firm.
The directive comes after management assured workers that there will be no job cuts despite the merger.
AirtelTigo is the new brand name carved out of the merger between telecom companies Tigo and Airtel.
The fresh name and logo were outdoored Monday, November 13.
The merger gives AirtelTigo 22 percent of market share.
