THE African Independent Television (AIT), Benin station, has sacked majority of its staff.
The management’s decision was conveyed to the affected staff in a letter dated June 2 and signed by the Senior Manager, Human Resources, Mr Victor Okasoga,
In the letter to the affected staff, who were being owed at least two year-salary arrears, Okasoga said their appointments had been terminated with effect from June 13.
The letter directed those affected to handover all company properties in their possession, especially their identity cards to the head of Benin station.
“Failure to surrender company properties in your possession may delay the processing of your entitlements,” the letter stated.
It will be recalled that three weeks ago, the affected workers, including reporters, cameramen, presenters and producers protested the undue delay in payment of their salaries running into about two years.
