Namdeb Management and the Mineworkers Union of Namibia (MUN) have concluded the annual 2012 wage negotiations which has resulted in a two-year wage agreement for the period of 2012/2013 and 2013/2014.
The agreement which is effective 1 April 2012 provides for a sliding scale increase to wages for employees in the Bargaining Unit as well as increases to a number of allowances.
According to a press statement released by both parties yesterday, the increase to 2012/2013 basic wages ranges between 8.5% and 10% depending on the grade of the employees, whilst the increase to 2013/2014 wages is 7.5% across the board.
The mediation panel, which was key in assisting the Company and the MUN in reaching an agreement, comprised of the Regional Councilor, Honourable Eliphas Iita, His Worship the Mayor, Henry Coetzee, SWAPO Regional District coordinator, Silas Shituula, Oranjemund Town Council Management Committee Chairman Toivo Auala and the Deputy Mayor Xungileni Ntinda.
Mayor of Oranjemund, Henry Coetzee said, “I wish to thank both parties for the way in which they conducted themselves during these negotiations. Today there is joy in our community that we have been able to settle this matter. We do not want instability in Oranjemund the newest town in Namibia. We want to see Namdeb growing to the benefit of all its stakeholders.”
