WCCR workers won’t get back pay

THE Windhoek Country Club and Resort (WCCR) will not pay its workers a backdated salary and housing allowance increase, which it offered to pay them this year.

The resort’s General Manager, Tony Boucher, told The Namibian that this would not be done because the company did not have the necessary funds. “And nowhere in our recognition agreement is back pay guaranteed,” said Boucher.He said the company respected workers’ right to take legal action in accordance with the Labour Act.On Thursday, the Acting Secretary General of the Namibian Food and Allied Workers Union (Nafau), Kiros Sackarias, said they were considering industrial action against WCCR for refusing to backdate a salary increase agreed after protracted negotiations since the beginning of the year.”And nowhere in our recognition agreement is back pay guaranteed,” said Boucher.He said the company respected workers’ right to take legal action in accordance with the Labour Act.On Thursday, the Acting Secretary General of the Namibian Food and Allied Workers Union (Nafau), Kiros Sackarias, said they were considering industrial action against WCCR for refusing to backdate a salary increase agreed after protracted negotiations since the beginning of the year.
