Fired workers of state TV-channel report on corruption at workplace
Workers dismissed from the state TV-channel are clueless as to what objective reasons might have led to them losing their jobs.
The Channel's staff asked Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prosecutor General Yury Chaika to check the "financial and economic activities of the leadership."
People dismissed from Russia-K Channel (formerly Kultura, part of the state-controlled VGTRK group) have published a petition asking the country's top leadership to check the financial and economic activities of the Channel over the past 8 years for corruption, as well as violations of tax and labor laws.
The employees appeal to President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, Human Rights Commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova and the Ministry of Culture.
Workers dismissed from the state TV-channel are clueless as to what objective reasons stipulated in the Labor Code have led to them losing their jobs. 300 people have been dismissed recently.
"Just as the Channel was doing the staff reduction, they were employing new people to take the freshly vacated places," the petition said.
Meanwhile, there had been no complaints or reprimands against the workers. The claimants stated that the Channel had forced them to sign the resignation notices “by agreement of the parties”.
The authors of the petition ask to see whether the Channel CEO Sergey Shumakov holds the position rightly. The petition claims that since 2009, when Shumakov took the post, the number of jobs has decreased and the quality of products has declined. Later, the Channel director said that Kultura was indeed experiencing optimization, so 114 people have been downsized, mainly because of overlapping and moving to a new office.
