Tuskys Supermarket is struggling and there’s no other lot that have felt the pain of that struggle than the staff members.
Kenyanbusinessfeed.com has received firsthand information from staff members about that suffering and we share below verbatim.
Though the company has received Sh2 billion from undisclosed investors, their strategy seems to be more on PR of reopening closed branches than in putting the record straight with human resource.
Good evening editor,
Am a staff (Artemis) working in one of Tuskys Supermarket branches, what we are undergoing is HELL. Imagine we haven’t been paid for the last two months. Some received as low as Sh3000 in their accounts while others have never even received a cent. How can u be inhuman to such extent?
Staffs are paying rent, others who must commute to attend jobs are going through hard times.
The Artemis managements keeps saying they have not received money from Tuskys; but for how long will we keep on suffering?
Let them pay us our dues and dismiss if need be. We’ll not hesitate to walk away. But they are making us suffer.
They’ve gone as far as reducing the quantity and quality of food. Initially breakfast was accompanied by a piece of bread but now they decided to abolish the bread and remain with a glass of tea alone. Lunch consists of a piece of Ugali and Sukuma Wiki. No change of diet.
Whenever we ask our branch managers all they do is give threats to employee and openly tell us if we are tired of this job we should leave
Publish this so that they pay us please.
WE ARE SUFFERING
Please allow me to expose Tuskys Supermarket, they have not been paid their staff July and August salaries especially the outsourced staff.
Worse they are being subjected to mandatory unpaid leave of 15 days and yet again the remaining salary worked for is subjected to 20% pay cut. In other words, the company is giving them only 30% and retaining 70%.
Even after doing all this, they haven’t paid them and they expect them to be on duty without delay.
Some of them have had their marriage broken, while many of them have been evicted from their houses for failing to pay rent. These people are suffering and also look at the attached photo (retained) of a mail coming from a regional manager directed to branch managers and cash officers, treating these loyal staff as suspects in a most inhumane manner.
Please help these Kenyans, they are suffering and many ending in depression.
