PART 15 OF 20 : “G17 Management”, by Vimal Shah


Bidco CEO Vimal Shah fancies himself as a management guru. Bidco workers have another view.

In 2011, workers went on strike to demand the ability to join trade unions and improve working conditions. Vimal rushed to the factory and requested that each department appoint their best representative, because Bidco management couldn’t speak to every worker individually.

Eventually, 17 people were appointed as employee representatives. Vimal referred to them as the “G17.” The chosen individuals were taken to a secluded hotel where they held discussions with top Bidco management.


However, their requests to management went unfulfilled – except that each employee was given one bar soap each month to wash their clothes.


Not long after that, the G17 team was systematically sacked on flimsy grounds. Not a one of the G17 works at Bidco today.
