Air Namibia ground staff are planning to hold a strike on Thursday, May 16, over salary disputes. At least 120 workers are expected to participate in the work stoppage, which is expected to affect Hosea Kutako International Airport (WHD) and Eros Airport (ERS) in the capital of Windhoek. Flight and operational disruptions are possible if the strike proceeds as planned.
Ground staff with Air Namibia have been negotiating salary issues with the management since 2017. According to the staff, the company has failed to implement its commitments, including cancelation of wage reductions and reimbursement of wages from June 2016, after the parties came to an agreement earlier in the year.
Individuals traveling with Air Namibia are advised to confirm their flight status and contact the airline for further information.
