(Business in Cameroon) - Staff delegates at Camair-Co, Cameroon airlines corporation, sent a letter to MD Ernest Dikoum last April 9 demanding the payment of 2 months of salary arrears.
“We just went through two months without being paid any money and we are starting a third month without any hope of getting out of this situation which really worries employees. For several months, we were paid one salary for two months. And due to bank commitments, invoices and various charges, employees get in debt just after they receive their salary,” they say.
According to internal company sources, this situation affects the mood, psychology, safety and performance of employees who lack concentration and are no longer enthusiastic to go to work.
As a reminder, Camair-Co has been going through difficult times for several months now, as all of its aircrafts are damaged. In January this year, the company generated XAF1.4 billion in revenues well below the monthly average of XAF2.4 billion recorded throughout 2018.
