Swarnavahini management has sacked 15 of its employees today. The sacking comes after a majority of its employees formed the first trade union in a private television channel this week. Writing to the staff members whose contracts were terminated the management had claimed the group had used the company parking space without permission along with the property of the company to hold a meeting. The employees have now been barred from entering the premises.
However, as a result, the morning programs of the station were not aired today as the staff stayed away from work in protest of the management and its decision to let go of 15 staff members. The union meeting held yesterday was attended by the majority of the staff sources said.
