According to a report reaching our desk, the management of the African Independent Television, AIT, has relieved all the workers of its station in Benin City of their appointments with immediate effect.
The management’s decision was conveyed in a letter dated 2-6-16 and signed by Mr Victor Okasoga, Senior Manager in charge of Human Resources.
In the letter to the affected staff who are being owed salaries for upwards of two years, Okasoga said their appointments have been terminated with effect from June 13 2016.
The letter directed those affected to handover all company properties in, “your possession especially your identity cards to the Head of Center.”
“Failure to surrender company properties in your possession may delay the processing of your entitlements,”the letter added.
It would be recalled that three weeks ago, the affected workers including reporters, cameramen, presenters and producers protested the undue delays in payment of their salaries running into a year and six months.
