Namport fires 86 workers

Namport says it anticipates a temporary setback to service delivery in the port of Walvis Bay, following the dismissal of 86 employees who took part in an illegal strike in the port’s container terminal in August last year. A further six employees received final written warnings for their part in the wildcat strike.

“This unfortunate turn of the events will regrettably result in disruption of service rendering capacity to our esteemed clients in certain areas. Whilst management has put in place measures to mitigate the impact of such disruptions, we are all urged to render our support when so requested and those specifically required will be engaged directly by their respective supervisors”, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of Namport, Mr Kavin Harry said to staff in an internal memorandum.
