Abakpa Anthony

Lagos, Feb. 6, 2019 (NNN) Mr Abakpa Anthony, president, National Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions Employees (NUBIFIE), on Wednesday warned against discrimination at workplaces, saying that it wastes human talent and reduces hard work.

News Agency of Nigeria

Anthony told the News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) in Lagos that discrimination at work places raises social tension and promotes disharmony.

According to him, a situation where a bank sacks about 300 workers, pays a few and refuses to pay others their entitlements, is a high level of discrimination.

He said that some of the workers had served the bank for between 16 to 22 years, without being paid their severance benefits.

Anthony said that the union would continue to fight for the rights and welfare of the workers until they were fully paid.

Guy Ryder

Mr Guy Ryder, Director, International Labour Organisation (ILO), in its newsletter, cautioned member-countries against discrimination at workplaces because it stifles opportunities for individual growth and retards economic progress.

Ryder said that combating discrimination was an essential part of the ILO’s decent work agenda as it effects would reflect in offices, homes and various areas of life.

“Promoting equality and combating discrimination in the workplace is vital for decent work. Discrimination can be based on different grounds.

“There is discrimination in race, gender, sexual orientation, HIV status, disability, age and political affiliation,’’ he said.

The ILO director added that discrimination was also linked to violence and harassment against women and men in the world of work. (NNN)
