WALVIS BAY, 18 JAN (NAMPA) – About 300 workers of Embwinda Fishing at Walvis Bay on Wednesday delivered a petition to management opposing the morale of their Human Resources Manager, Rosina Moshoeshoe.
Reading the document, group spokesperson Annalisa Dausas, said Moshoeshoe disrespects employees by always reminding them that they are not educated and must go to school.
They said she also does not listen to their grievances and has been suspending various people.
The workers claimed that she has been recruiting and promoting her friends.
“We do not want to work with her; the company must recruit another manager who has a good heart,” the petition says.
Contacted by Nampa immediately after the submission of the petition, Moshoeshoe declined to comment.
Finance Manager, Charl Dreyer received the petition on behalf of the company.
“I accept the petition and I will deliver it to the board of directors for consideration,” Dreyer said briefly.
The Namibia Seamen and Allied Workers’ Union (Nasawu) represented the workers.
Nasawu Secretary-General, Errkie Shitana and President Paulus Hango were in attendance.
“We will see how we can address the issue of dismissals with their management,” Hango said.
Embwinda has close to 800 employees of which approximately 600 are Nasawu members.
The disgruntled workers also took the opportunity to comment on the clothes Moshoeshoe wears, saying she dresses like someone who is at home or going to a club.
“A human resources manager who works with people is supposed to wear official clothes at work always,” reads the petition.
