ISLAMABAD – Dunya News Television managers have told employees to be ready for 15 to 20 percent pay cuts when they receive their October salaries.
The management individually conveyed the decision Tuesday to staff members after earlier slashing pays of two leading presenters – Moeed Pirzada and Kamran Shahid - by almost 35 percent.
Pirzada, not happy with the drastic cut, opted to quit. He is currently serving out the notice period.
Insiders say that the 15 to 20 percent cuts will affect almost the entire reporting team, some staff working on the news desk, and NLEs.
The staffers were told to accept the decision, or leave.
