EASTERN Province Cricket is embroiled in a controversial restructuring process which may result in the organisation losing a number of senior staff only days before the start of the new cricket season.
A recorded net operating loss of R3.262-million for the 2012 financial year forced Eastern Province Cricket into the restructuring process, which dragged on for months until staff were given letters on August 29.
All 24 of EP Cricket's permanent staff were invited to apply for a voluntary severance package (VSP) and were given only a week in which to do so. According to acting EP Cricket president Dr Malcolm Figg, 11 staff members have applied for packages, which provide for three weeks' pay for every year's service.
Six of them are heads of department.
Those who had not applied for the VSP were yesterday told they would have to re-apply for their positions.
