KARACHI – The Pakistan Herald Workers Union has begun talks with the Dawn management seeking withdrawal of a decision to cut staff wages by 40 percent.
A seven-member party comprising union leaders met Hameed Haroon, CEO of the Dawn Media Group on Tuesday.
The union members apprised Haroon of the financial problems that stare the staff in the face. They called for an immediate reversal of the management’s decision to slap pay cuts.
Haroon, reportedly told the union that the financial situation at the media group was quite bad. He said they were even thinking of retrenchments.
However, the CEO sought two days from the union to see what could be done to resolve the matter.
Dawn announced imposing a 40 percent cut in staff salaries last month because of falling advertising revenue and an increase in operational costs.
