Togocom signs collective agreement with its unions for better working conditions

(Togo First) - In Togo, wage gaps between employees of Togo Cellulaire and Togo Telecom should reduce soon. Togocom, the two firms’ parent company, signed a collective convention to this end with its unions on February 21, 2023. The signing marks the end of talks started in April 2021 by the concerned parties. 

Besides wages, the convention will enable the harmonization of bonuses, indemnities, and other social advantages. Concretely, the agreement sets the professional classification scale and the wage scale for Togocom’s workers. 

"The main takeaway of this agreement is that we significantly bridged the gaps between the two companies, Togo Cellulaire and Togo Telecom, especially in terms of remuneration, activity bonuses, and performance bonuses," said Tarik Boudiaf, acting CEO of Togocom.

"We have come a long way, and one thing is leading to another, the negotiations between the top management and the union organization have allowed us to reach a point where we had to stop and capitalize on what we have obtained and open up other areas of work. So, at this level, it is a win for both parties," said Bataka Bodjona, General Secretary of the Union of Digital Workers of Togo (STNT).

“We managed to reach a collective convention which takes into account the achievements and benefits that need improvement on both sides,” the same source added. 

Representatives of the ministry of public service, labor, and social dialogue, the directorate general of labor, and representatives of workers were also present at the signing.
