An alleged resignation letter from Oppo Punjab Service team has begun circulating online wherein the employees claim the Chinese company has been 'disrespectful' towards them and the nation.
The letter mentions that the HOD has been pressurising a Service manger named Arun Sharma to resign and has made some derogatory remarks such as Indians are beggars and only work for money.
The complete letter reads:
“We are OPPO Service Team Punjab & here we are resigning whole service team because our HODs is making pressure to our Service Manager Mr. Arun Sharma to resign, & by wrong pressure. He (does not refer to Sharma but a different Manager) always disrespect our India Country & our culture, As per him we Indian only work for Money, & we are not having any dignity & self respect.
He always makes us unnecessary penalty & wrong commitment. He make us to work till late night & if we miss any report he create penalty. When some employee asks for salary increment, he says Indian are baggers always asking for money.
There are a lot of other reasons too, but this kind of hitlership is not accepted any stage of private sector. So kindly accept our resignation.”
Regards, Service Team (Oppo, Punjab)
However, now there are multiple reports as the team refuses to have resigned and are looking for the origin of the letter. We got in touch with the company and an official statement from the company reads:
"We at OPPO India are aware of the recent report related to our Punjab Service team on July 15th and it had been resolved on July 16th. The whole issue was due to the miscommunication between the two parties. The service team was upset over the manager being asked to tender his resignation because of inadequate work performance after several formal warnings for the same. But later, a consensus was reached and the concerned service team is continuing to work with us.
OPPO has deep respect for India, its culture and our employees. We will try our best to avoid misunderstandings due to any form of miscommunication in the future."
Earlier this year, OPPO was in troubled waters over a Chinese employee at the Noida Sector 63 facility of Oppo India disrespected the national flag. The employee was later fired and OPPO had issued an apology.
