Ibrahim Fibre fired pandemic

The prevalent pandemic hit the world with a brutal force. Making things harsh and leaving its mark on everything it could destroy. Not only were lived lost due to the virus, but rather economic and social issues also aspired the pandemic to a completely new level. Many businesses started to fail and lay off employees due to low revenues and poor targets achievement. Poverty-stricken families swallowed the dose of inflationary poison as life became hard. Recently Ibrahim Fibres has also fired its workers due to the pandemic.

Ibrahim Fibres fires at least 2000 workers

Simultaneously, with the poor situation of complete chaos taking over the place, it was viable that some repercussions were to be taken. Many organizations were looking for ways to lay off their employees. Ibrahim Fibres has also fired at least 2000 workers in Faisalabad. According to some reports, the number is even more than that.

Ibrahim Fibres is a flagship unit of the Ibrahim Group. The group holds interests in textiles, captive power, modaraba, leasing, and commodity trading.

In order to protest for their rights during pandemic, workers lined up to protest in Faisalabad right after they were sacked and fired by Ibrahim Fibres – the organization that also owns Allied Bank!

And the job saturation in the market increased inevitably. At this time, when misery struck from every corner; Ibrahim Fibres claims to have not enough money to pay these workers.

A poor woman, whose husband is laid off also pleads in this protest to plead authorities for justice and help.

Hence, to request for a form of retribution, former workers align in Faisalabad to protest against the organization’s cruelty.

In addition to that, a poor worker’s wife pleads the government and people to help her. She adds about her financial difficulties and how it is becoming difficult for them to live life during the ongoing pandemic.

She agrees that times are tough, but she requests for help after the dismissal of her husband from Ibrahim Fibres, without notice. It is utterly sad to see how so many people can get deprived of the basic facilities of life so easily.

As a whole, there is no doubt, that this world is becoming a sad state of affairs with no humanity. In April this year, the famous Nishat Group and Mian Mansha were also under fire after one ex-employee blew the whistle on the mass sacking. The company had sacked 800 employees. We surely hope the sacked workers of Ibrahim Fibres get justice and their jobs back
