Some of the dismissed workers at the time said the management of TV3 discriminated against them.

But the station denied any wrongdoing.

The spokesperson of TV3’s management, Henry Nii Dortey said; “We invited the union and asked them – do you intend to go on a strike or what is happening so that we will understand clearly what was happening. Because you haven’t served any notice of same to us, and the labour law requires that if you want to take a decision that is well within your rights, you have to notify your management. The response they gave to us is that it is not a union decision and the union hasn’t made any declaration of going on strike. But these activities that were happening were a worrying situation that we had to deal with.”
