TVC Attacked over Controversial Sack of 145 Staff



Television Continental, Lagos which is reportedly owned by a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently in the eye of the storm.
 
 
Labour leaders today (Saturday) described the sacking of 145 workers by Continental Broadcast Services Ltd as a national embarrassment.
 
CBS is the owner of Television Continental and Radio Continental.
 
Labour leaders who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos condemned the mass lay-off. Chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists, Lagos State chapter, Mr. Deji Elumoye, said the sack was unnecessary and embarrassing to the nation.
 
According to Elumoye, the sack is uncalled for especially at a time when media houses, including TVC, are under-staffed.
 
“In most media houses, journalists are overworked. One person covers two to three beats and now they have been sacked. It is unacceptable,” he said.
 
The NUJ chairman said CBS had the right to hire and fire, but should have endeavoured to pay workers their entitlements before issuing the sack letters.
 
He said the sack was a wrong way to celebrate the organisation’s 10th anniversary, which was made possible by the workers.
 
He said the organisation should have restructured the management level such as the expatriates who are being paid in dollars, rather than sacking 80 per cent of the journalists.
 
President, Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Mr. Bobboi Kaigama, also condemned the sack in its totality and said the organised labour would look into it soon.
 
“The leaders of the NLC and TUC are in Geneva for the International Labour Organisation conference. We will take action on it when we return,” Kaigama said.
 
Also, TUC Secretary General, Mr. Musa Lawal, told NAN that the number of workers sacked was unacceptable, because it would increase the level of poverty already being suffered by the people.
 
Lawal said it was not proper for the private sector employer to sack that number of workers at once over little economic shakeup, while expatriates are retained and paid in hard currency.
 
He said the organised labour leaders would look into the issue when they return from the ILO conference. However, the CBS management in a statement said the sack was necessitated by the need to restructure the organisation.
