Workers want Walvis Bay Salt to shelf retrenchment plans

Workers Union of Namibia demand their employer shelf plans to retrench a number of its workers. Walvis Bay Salt recently announced the retrenchment of 25 workers as the company has increased production efficiencies and these positions became redundant.

The Company plans to hire these retrenched workers from time to time on a non-permanent basis it the need arises.
In a petition the workers not only demands the retrenchment plans are shelved. They also want Walvis Bay Salt not to proceed out-sourcing these jobs after the retrenchment.
Furthermore, workers want to see a process of “insourcing” where casual workers are given permanent employment.
The Mine Workers Union gave Walvis Bay Salt until day end today to respond to these demands.
