Angola: Public Electricity Firm Needs 70 Percent Salary Increase

Luanda — The state-owned National Firm of Electricity Supply (ENDE) needs a 70% salary increase to be able to adjust the various discrepancies in remunerations of workers with the same category, following demands being made by the concerned trade-union.

According to ENDE chairwoman, Ruth Safeca, on a recent interview to ANGOP, in the present context the firm is facing a lot of difficulties to conduct such adjustment.

In view of this reality, she said, the board have been informing the workers regularly, through the trade-union, about the financial state of the company and the difficulties it faces.

"There are other worries, but we've doing an open and transparent management (...)", she said, adding that the situation regarding the salary discrepancies of workers with the same category came up after the merger of two public companies (ENE and EDEL) that gave birth to ENDE.

ENE and EDEL workers were incorporated into ENDE with their previous salaries (many of which not in the proper category and waiting for adjustment), thus creating salary discrepancies of workers with the same remuneration category.

Despite the situation, Ruth Safeca pledged to tackle and harmonise the situation, with a view to boosting the well-being of the workers.
