About 200 employees have been sacked paging company ABC communications in the past two days. The sackings followed a decision to move the paging service to Macau, it was disclosed last night. The Hong Kong Communication Industry Employees Association said ABC had pledged in January that there would be no layoffs and that it would not move its operations from Hong Kong. Separately, the beleaguered satellite channel China Entertainment Television (CETV) announced its imminent closure. The station's 76 remaining staff were told the news at a 5pm meeting and will not receive this month's pay because of the station's financial woes. The four-year-old company, which used to have a 'no sex, no violence, no news' programme ethos before beaming repackaged news to China, has been left in financial difficulty after a mainland consortium pulled out of a deal to buy an 80 per cent stake. Staff at subsidiaries of China Travel Service have lost their jobs because of 'restructuring', a company spokeswoman said. She declined to say how many people had been fired. One CTS worker said some departments, such as the household electrical appliances sales department, had closed.
