MVS Radio last night announced the termination of its employment relationship with journalist Carmen Aristegui, host of the morning news. Read my previous post for back story.
MVS Terminates employment relationship:
-Freedom of expression is fully exercised by MVS Radio, as has been demonstrated in the particular case of Carmen Aristegui.
-The company will continue with its information services.
-Today MVS Radio has terminated the employment relationship with journalist Carmen Aristegui Flores. In order to settle the issue we confronted, the journalist Aristegui Flores demanded the reinstatement of two of our collaborators. It is pertinent to recall that these two reporters were terminated from their posts, for having used, without authorization, the name of MVS, and without having previously consulted with the administration of the company.
-We regret the position of the journalist, but as a company we do not accept conditionality’s and ultimatums of our employees. Dialogue, is not served by imposing conditions, but listening to the parties and trying to reach agreements.
-At MVS Radio, we work as a team. The culture of our organization revolves around that concept, so individualistic attitudes have no place in our project.
