Earlier this week S-VOX, the parent company of VisionTV, announced the sale of The Christian Channel to World Impact Ministries. Most employees learned the news by way of a press release, or by reading stories from outside media sources.
Since the employer chose to be so secretive about the sale and the details surrounding it, a number of Guild members employed by S-VOX have raised questions about their future within the company. S-VOX’s secrecy has extended to the bargaining agent as well; the Guild has not been given any information about how the sale will affect S-VOX’s operations or staffing.
We have requested an urgent joint committee meeting to get information. In the meantime, all members of the Guild’s bargaining unit at S-VOX, including those who work on The Christian Channel, continue to be covered by the collective agreement.
We will update you with any new information as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can contact Keith Maskell (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 416-591-5333.
