TVP employees prepare to strike

19.08.2009 12:39

Trade unions are preparing to strike after Poland’s public television (TVP) decided to fire more than 900 employees by the end of this year.

Not only the rank and file employees will have to look for new jobs, but also some of the broadcaster’s stars received a brief message about the cuts:

“We are sorry to inform you, that you are on the group redundancy list. The redundancies will start on August 31, and will finish on December 31.”

TVP trade unions have already began the first stage of industrial action. Flags and banners wave at the company’s main gate and the trade unionists are preparing to ballot members as to the form the protest will take.

Unofficially, some workers say they do not exclude breaks in broadcasting

Seems a lot of people!!!!!

Re: TVP employees prepare to strike

Seems like a good move.

Besides 9/10 people in Poland seem to watch only Polsat.
