Alpha Pacific Navigation announces wage increases

Jan 19, 2006

Alpha Pacific Navigation Ltd on Funafuti has announced that its parent company, the Ahrenkiel Group, has decided to increase seamen’s wages, effective 1st January 2006.

The increases are about 3%.

This increase was the Company’s own decision, and is an indication that it is still viewing Tuvaluan seafarers as preferred employees.

John Hansford, the Manager of Alpha, said: “This increase comes about because of our many good seamen, who have worked hard and served the Company faithfully for many years.

“It is wonderful to have their support at a time when there are so many GARBAGE SEAMEN trying to destroy employment prospects of Tuvaluans”.
