Workers of NovaNam unhappy with distribution of shares


Workers of NovaNam at Luderitz in the ||Kharas Region claim they have been kept in the dark on the distribution of N$10 million in workers' shares in the fishing company.

The workers handed over a petition to the HR Manager, demanding an audience with the company's management on the status of their shares.

Delivering the petition on behalf of the workers, Rebekka Uusiku called on the management of NovaNam not to change the shareholding of 15% of the workers to trustees without the workers' consent.
