Barclays hopeful that a salary agreement can be reached with Union

In the wake of the stalemate of salary negotiations between Botswana Bank Employees Union (BOBEU) and Barclays Bank of Botswana that resulted in a declaration of deadlock, the bank’s Human Resources Director, Richard Malikongwa, has expressed optimism that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached.

Salary negotiations reached a deadlock last week. It is understood that the Union has expressed a desire to hand a petition to the bank’s Interim Managing Director, Aupa Monyatsi.

“We can confirm that following the impasse of salary negotiation and a declaration of deadlock, Barclays has received a letter from Botswana Bank Employees Union informing the Bank of their intention to hand a petition to the bank,” Malikongwa said this week.

While the Union’s letter does not specify the contents of the petition, Malikongwa has noted that “we recently have reached a deadlock with the Union on salary increments for our unionised staff”.

“While the matter has been referred for mediation before the Commissioner of Labour we are keen to resolve this through the normal channels and we are optimistic that working together with BOBEU as our partners we can reach a mutually beneficial agreement,” he said, further pointing out that Barclays plays a significant role in the socio-economic development of Botswana through its Corporate Social Investment and Citizenship agenda.

“We remain committed and sensitive to the welfare and needs of our employees,” Malikongwa pointed out.
