Exclusive reports suggest that management of EIB Network has allegedly laid off staffs for demonstrating over unpaid salaries.
The report said the media firm owes employees salary arrears up to nine months.
Following the demonstration, which commenced on Monday, July 4, 2022, management of the firm has suspended all the staff members who participated in the protest. They were directed to stay off-air with immediate effect.
Some journalists took to their social media to criticize the management of EIB Network over the incident. The staff of EIB have remained tight-lipped about the ongoing situation due to fear of getting fired.
Ebenezer Donkoh (NY DJ) of YFM said, “Management has directed all aggrieved workers who participated in the demonstration to stay off air until further notice.”
Bridget Otoo of Metro TV, also accused the management of abuse.
She tweeted, “You can never call someone who has worked for 3 months or even 11 months without pay anything short of loyal. Stop abusing your workers by hiding behind loyalty and pay them! They have families. How do you expect them to feed, when their bosses are lavishly flaunting their wealth?
“Telling your employees to tighten their belts while you have loosened yours!” she added.
