The Hartlief strike has entered the second week of “no work, no pay”. The meat factory employees went on strike on 28 December demanding a salary increase and a revision of their work conditions. The Namibian newspaper reports the employees have been camping outside the company premises in Windhoek to ensure that Hartlief does not employ illegal tactics. The union and employees are demanding N$750 across the board, which is an average increase of 13%. Ruben Nghifimule, the employees’ spokesperson, told the Namibian that they are willing to renegotiate their demands provided that the company comes to the negotiation table.
