NBL agrees to 7,5% wage increase

Employees at Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) will receive a 7,5% overall increase on their basic salaries in 2024.

This is part of a substantive wage agreement signed between NBL and the Namibia Food and Allied Workers Union (Nafau) for all bargaining unit employees.

The increments are applicable for the period 1 July this year to 30 June 2024, and 1 April this year to 30 June 2024, respectively.

“Everyone is affected by the rising cost of living. The workers are therefore grateful for the increase they will receive, and Nafau is proud to have facilitated these negotiations with the gallant shop stewards who made sure the demands of the workers are met to ensure their co-workers get their increase on time,” says Simon Muukapo, Nafau’s regional coordinator.

The company says it will continue with the current incentive scheme that will enable employees in the bargaining unit to earn an additional bonus equal to a monthly salary during the financial year.
