The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to terminate contract employees.
PESHAWAR, December 01, 2010 (Balochistan Times): The State Bank of
Pakistan has decided to terminate its all contract employees working
throughout the country, but authorities have declined any such thoughts.
The number of temporary employees belonging to State Bank is over 500
who have become agitated over this information. State Banks spokesperson
when approached for clarification, has said that there is no such plan
in consideration of authorities. On contrary, he said SBP plans to
revisit the contacts of such non-permanent employees when needed. It has
been learnt from sources quoting the Legal Council of State Bank Samira
Bakhtaran that renewing of contracts is not in plans of institute rather
to dismiss them upon finishing their terms. There is a chaos developed
among the temporary staff of bank working all over the country on this
half-truth. Temporary staff includes but are not limited to security
guards and high ranked officers who are working on this status. This has
also been learnt from the sources that some of contract employees were
given permanent status earlier by the premier bank.
