No, it is not only a “handful” of employees who are dissatisfied, as is falsely portrayed by individuals in leading positions, they emphasize.

“Disciplinary measures are ready! The creators of RTV content, who supported their harassed colleagues in the studio on August 24 and September 5 at the end of the television Dnevnik, will receive warnings this week. This is new, unacceptable pressure from the management of RTV Slovenia and Television Slovenia to everyone who points out the intolerable conditions, especially in the Informative program of TV Slovenia and MMC, the absence of communication and constant professional slippage, as well as violations of journalistic and editorial autonomy,” can be read on the website, where the public service team informs the public about the difficult situation at RTV Slovenia and the importance of public service for a democratic society.

“They are in a hurry with pressure and intimidation”

“The General Director of RTV Andrej Grah Whatmough and the Director of TVS Uroš Urbanija wiped the dust off the 26-year-old rulebook and carried out their threats. They are in a hurry with pressure and intimidation, they withdrew the announced move without any legal basis even before the ombudsman prepared the report. Go for pure mobbing, and this on the day when a meeting of employees with the mobbing commissioner is just taking place at RTV,” the journalist wrote on the Facebook social network Eugenia Carl.

At the same time, they add that the day after the solidarity arrival of the creators in the television Dnevnik studio, on September 6, the management of RTV Slovenia wrote a disparaging press release with an apology to the viewers: “In this message (via a leaked PR channel), they wrote that ‘individuals have completely aligned themselves with a group of activists led by Ladislav Troha, who broke into the studio of a public institution last September and tried to encroach on program time in an inadmissible way.'”

No, it is not only a “handful” of employees who are dissatisfied, as is falsely portrayed by individuals in leading positions, they emphasize. In the RTV SMO collective, they resolutely reject all the pressures of the general management of RTV Slovenia on employees and announce: “We are not afraid! We are here!”

As is known, the journalists’ unions of Radiotelevisija Slovenija will intensify their strike, in which, among other things, they demand journalistic autonomy. The day-long warning strike will take place on September 26. This was the decision of the strike committee due to the increasingly difficult conditions at the institution and the failure of negotiations so far, the committee wrote.
