50% salary cut for SLBC  due to COVID-19

Heads of all divisions of the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) have been informed that if Covid-19 spreads island wide, only 50% of salaries will be paid to a group SLBC employees.

The decision was taken on the 5th October by the Chairman, Deputy Director (Programs), Directors and Assistant Directors.

At that meeting, it was decided that 50% of the employees other than those who are engaged in essential duties should be provided with the work from home option and those who work from home should be paid half of their salaries.

It is reported that the responsibility of identifying the essential people to be brought in for the duties of the corporation and preparing the documents have been handed over to the heads of the engineering, news and program divisions.

In the meantime, it has been decided to provide only one vehicle per driver.

Meanwhile, internal sources of the SLBC say that the Acting Director (Administration) has been instructed to provide an incentive allowance based on the number of days the employees, who continued to work during the period when the country was closed due to COVID-19, reported to duty.

List of promotions given by the Union sent to Minister of Finance

Meanwhile, it is reported that the Minister of Mass Media and Information has submitted the list of promotions requested by two unions attached to SLBC, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) and Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), to the Ministry of Finance.
