Nudo supports striking Shoprite employees
18 January 2021 | Economics
Employees of Shoprite, Checkers, and Usave are demanding a salary increment of N$ 600, housing allowance of N$450, transport allowance of N$ 500, and permanent employment for workers who have worked in these stores for over a year.
Nudo Secretary General and Member of Parliament (MP) Joseph Kauandenge claimed that it has become the norm for foreign companies to disregard Namibian labour laws and pay their workers peanuts while they take the bulk of their money back to their respective countries.
Kauandenge also noted that Nudo is perplexed by the silence of the Namibian Government on the Shoprite issue.
He further called on Namibians to reject the exploitation of Namibian workers by foreign establishments.
“We are also calling on all Namibians to show solidarity with the striking workers and not to buy from Shoprite,” he said. - Nampa
