LAHORE: The Lahore Waste Management Company dismissed 105 employees in May for long absence from duty to ensure 100pc attendance.

The company has terminated 833 employees in January, 558 in February, 614 in March and 413 in April for unauthorised leaves.

A LWMC spokesperson said practical steps were being taken to strengthen transparency in the organisation and a notification of dismissing 105 absent employees was issued. He said 2,522 long-term absent employees had been terminated from service this year. He said all these dismissed employees were constantly absent from duty and action was taken against the absent employees to maintain the total number of workers deployed in the city.

He said the department also advertised and conducted interviews for the position of sanitary workers to provide exemplary cleanliness services to the citizens.

LWMC Chief Executive Officer Rafia Haider said the organisation strives to provide the best sanitation facilities to the citizens and unauthorised leaves would disrupt service delivery and the best service delivery is only possible with 100pc attendance.
