TVIEC UPDATE


6 April 2010

Have you been paid?

Dear fellow industry professionals

We are trying to follow up on outstanding SABC debt owed to producers and freelancers. SABC had promised to pay all outstanding debt by the end of March 2010. However, we are getting word that many of us have not received overdue payments. Please can you take the time to update us on the status of your payment so that we can either tick you off the list or continue to fight for what you are owed.

Thank you
TVIEC
