After workers protested non payment of salaries three weeks ago, the management of the African Independent Television (AIT) today relieved all the workers of its station in Benin City of their appointments with immediate effect.
The managementâ€™s decision was made known in a letter signed by Mr Victor Okasoga, Senior Manager in charge of Human Resources.
In the letter to the affected staff, Okasoga said their appointments have been terminated with effect from June 13 2016. The letter directed those affected to handover all company properties in, â€œyour possession especially your identity cards to the Head of Center.â€
â€œFailure to surrender company properties in your possession may delay the processing of your entitlements,â€ the letter added.
The workers had protested the non payment of their salaries which was running into two years.
