Meanwhile, there has been disquiet at the national broadcaster as the workers union constantly clashed with the Board of Directors whom they accuse of not working in the interest of the station.

Not long ago, the GBC workers union wrote to the Commission (NMC) to dissolve the board whom they say are “micromanaging the affairs of GBC” as well as misappropriating internally generated funds by buying cars for themselves while they lack logistics to work.

The National Labour Commission (NLC) has also in the interim instructed the disgruntled workers to discontinue demonstration and its related activities towards the board following a hearing on Wednesday.

The NLC heard the concerns of Management and Board of the Corporation as well as the National and Local Union representative of the Public Services Workers Union (PSWU).
