16 September 2015

  Elgin Brown & Hamer (EBH) Namibia has announced the signing of a new wage agreement with the company’s bargaining unit.

The negotiations were successfully concluded on 8 September 2015, representing another milestone for management-employee relationships within EBH Namibia. The agreement has seen the awarding of an overall 9% increase to the company’s wage bill.

“As the management of EBH Namibia, we are pleased to have reached such an equitable wage agreement. It points to mutual commitment to future sustainability of the company, as well as increased levels of tolerance and co-operation within the organisation,” says Patrick Chizabulyo, HR Manager at EBH Namibia.

The 2015 wage negotiations, which commenced on 29 May, have taken place at a time when the sustained low oil price has resulted in a challenging economic climate, particularly for the downstream oil and gas sector.

“Despite the challenges which we are all facing as a result of the low oil price, EBH Namibia management is committed more than ever to maintaining a stable and positive workforce, through focused skills development and a spirit of co-operation within the organization,” says Hannes Uys, Chief Executive Officer of EBH Namibia.

The successful and peaceful conclusion to the wage negotiations points to an ever-deeper and mutual commitment to a future of sustainable growth for the company, to the ultimate benefit of all stakeholders,” Uys concludes.
