NHE Employees Strike Continues

The National Housing Enterprises employees’ strike continued today, although workers say they still have not received a response from management.
Tuafi Shafombabi in the telephonic interview with Windhoek Observer said nothing has changed yet, the company still evokes a no-work no-pay principle during the strike, in terms of section 76 (1) of the Labour, Act No. 11 of 2007.
In a press release on the matter by NHE last week Tuesday, Shafomabi indicated that the company has contingency plans in place, however it is without a doubt that the industrial action will negatively impact their operations and disrupt the normal schedule services for the duration of the industrial action, which is unknown by both parties.
Public Service Union of Namibia Secretary General Mathews Haakuria said the minister of Urban and Rural Development did not respond so far.
In Windhoek the employees are striking at Katutura at the company’s headquarters in Eros.
A number of employees have also joined the strike countrywide, although the union could not say how many employees are on strike.
The employees are demanding a seven percent salary increase.
