NBC board asks management to iron out 'technicalities' before engaging NAPWU

The NBC board has directed the corporation's management to iron out a number of "internal technicalities", and then engage the Namibia Public Workers Union, with comprehensive feedback.
The board took this decision at its special meeting, after studying a report from Management, explaining their position on wage negotiations with NAPWU.
In a statement issued to the media, NBC spokesperson Umbi Karuaihe-Upi explained that the Board takes the matter of employee remuneration very seriously and that the broadcaster strives to be a people-centred organization.
She said that given the fact that the nbc is negotiating - in good faith with its key partner NAPWU - it would be considered insincere for the broadcaster to comment publicly on the matter, before communicating with the union, at the appropriate platform.
NBC employees last received a salary increment three years ago.
