Brian Fritz at The Sporting News has an article today on the TNA production staff being late in pay, saying that production workers are still owed money for the One Night Only PPV tapings from 2/13 to 2/16.
While not stated in the story, although obvious, the same workers had not been paid for the most recent set of tapings either. We have independently confirmed the story is accurate.
The story also stated:
- One production team member was told by the company that the checks were cut on 4/3, but 14 days later, nobody had received them yet.
- Production workers were not paid for the U.K. tour in late January until early this month, and claimed that, on average, the workers were shorted an average of $1,000 on pay for that tour.
There had been similar issues with late payment to the production people last year, which came to a head at a TV taping where things were finally settled.
In addition, Josh Eldridge, TNA's Content Manager for Digital and Social Media gave his two weeks notice and will be leaving the company for an outside offer.
