A group of 20 employees of Ekango Salt Refiners, employed on a contract basis by Mauritius Investment CC, held a protest against unfair labour practices at the company in Walvis Bay.

The employees, joined by the AR Movement in Walvis Bay, say the unconducive working environment at the company has become unbearable.

The employees, among others, are demanding that they be employed on terms and conditions that are the same as and not less favourable than those of full-time employees, who perform similar work.

The disgruntled employees have also alleged that the company is deducting N$150 from the employees' salaries to pay for the company's bank charges when payments are made.

The petition was handed over to the human resources manager for Walvis Bay Salt Refiners, Marizaan Hennop.
