PCB withdraws termination notices served to 55 employees
LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday withdrew termination of service notices served to 55 staffers earlier this week.
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan said the vast overstaffing that the current board had inherited remained a long-term sustainability issue for the PCB. “Making changes is about timing and, on reflection, the process and communication needed to be better,” he said.
He said as a responsible organisation, the PCB had reviewed its decision and acted quickly to withdraw the notices.
Meanwhile, the PCB will continue the exercise to restructure and rationalize its staff numbers and will make necessary decisions in due course. The PCB presently has an overall strength of 710 employees across the country, including 361 and 70 in Lahore and Karachi offices, respectively.
