Staff of First Spring Franchise Services, a human resource service provider of Enterprise Bank Limited have been accused of reneging on an agreement brokered by the bank with their organisation on a number of disputed issues.
This, the bank said, led to the disruption of operations at its head office at the weekend.
A statement from the bank Friday said, "following a long negotiation involving representatives of Nigeria Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions Employees and the Nigeria Labour Congress, the bank and the FSFS representatives, agreements were reached as to matters of dispute, which the workers later decided to renege on.
"It became a surprise to management of the bank that the FSFS staff will recant and resort to picketing the financial institution, disallowing staff and customers’ access to the offices and banking halls respectively, while carrying placards with denigrating remarks.
"Appeals to the picketing staff by the management of the bank for more time to look at the issues have fallen on deaf ears as they have continued with the illegality which began without due notice of the required minimum of seven days."
