CBC staff blue over pay
STAFF at the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) are reportedly upset with the state-owned entity over its failure to pay outstanding increments due since 2009.
DAILY NATION sources said that for months the staff have been grumbling over management’s failure to resolve the issue and pay the more than 300 workers their retroactive money.
“What has upset the staff for the most part is that out of the $40 million loan guarantee from Government, management has been unwilling to provide $1 million to pay for the increments.
“Some public officers have received increments yearly despite the economic recession, CBC staffers have been unable to get their just due,” said one senior staffer last night.
