The agreement affects 41 Hangana Abalone employees.
Bianca Muller, the human capital manager of the Lüderitz-based company which is a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, said the agreement will ensure that the relationship between the management of Hangana Abalone and NAFAU is further strengthened.
