At a time of heightened expectation that there may be job losses throughout the private sector as a result of hurricanes Irma and Maria, one company has announced what it described as a painful and temporary reorganization of its workforce.

BVI Cable TV said the move is necessary because it has lost virtually all of its equipment during the recent natural disasters.

“After the passing of hurricanes Irma and Maria, BVI Cable TV suffered massive damage to the network infrastructure.  Nearly all of our poles, satellites, and cables throughout the territory were damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced.”

“Unfortunately, due to the devastation caused by both hurricanes, BVI Cable TV must temporarily reorganize our workforce to facilitate the rebuilding of the organization. The reorganization of the workforce, although painful, is a necessary part of BVI Cable TV survival. However, we anticipate this reorganization of the workforce will only be temporary as we move to quickly rebuild our network infrastructure,” BVI Cable TV said in a media release.

It did not specify how many workers will be affected.

“Regardless of the circumstances we all are now facing, we intend to rebuild our network and provide you with an even better quality product and service. We are BVI Strong and together we will rise,” added the company.
