Contributed by staff
On behalf of the MTCC staff the following concerns have to be addressed to the board, the management of MTCC or the Grievance committee as earliest. Hope this will not be ignored since these have come from many of sincere employees ,who shall be kept unmentioned.
Their main concerns (not in any order):
- Insurance scheme: Worst package for the staff. (BML, Dhiraagu and even much smaller companies offers to their staff much better packages). (ps refer to the articles and comments published in this blog for more complains)
- New Salary structure:
o Benefits to the seniors while the lower levels are left to struggle.
o OT questionable!
o Thilafushi , staff must get a beneficial like off-residential allowance
o Long term allowance has to implemented
o Fuel or transport allowance to procurement related staff
o Late fine, still calculated like before. This must be deducted per minute than per 15 minutes
o Phone allowance is unrealistic
o Duty travel, especially foreign, entertainment allowance! For what?also why all these allowances varies with than MD. (if some has to travel with MD, they will get lower allowances and still has to travel, eat and stay with MD and get less allowances.!!!!!
o Education allowance, is not a discrimination allowance
o Band to to band increment is consistent in the same level
o Senior Engineer is must not be in a lower level than a deputy director. Now they lower then even assistant directors!
- Company Structure:
o Politically influenced structure
o A bias structure
o Unnecessary departments and units, just to give some one a higher rank. Legal Department (only two staff, not even a single senior staff), Logistics and Rentals department (logistic does not mean tug and barge), Admin can go together with Corporate and maintenance has to be with them but not under TSD.
- MTCC Scholars: Majority of educated ones under the scheme are left in a lower level with fewer authorities and responsibilities. They are frustrated….Those who have been invested must be used wisely.
- Corruption: everywhere anywhere at any time and all know. There is a ferry called 8 lakaa, maintenance of the foreign going vessels (1 square meter of patching of the Barge!!), some TSD staff operating their own launches, sub-contractors being untouchable, illegal use of Maintenance unit, Purchasing of buss and ferry boats, travelling of senior management staff to abroad, list goes on and on..
Thanks for this blog on creating an environment to express our deepest concerns about our caretaker. We will stand against corruption, bias actions, frauds and fight for our rights till the end. May mighty ALLAH bless our company and forgive the sinners.
To be continued….
