Dear colleagues,

I write to ask if any of you have been recently employed by Noordhoek and have not been paid. If this is the case, please can you get in touch with me with copies of your invoices and your membership numbers as we have contacted our solicitors over this issue.

However, I must make it clear that this is for paid-up RMT members only.

Kind regards

If I remember correctly that was an old tub of a converted supply boat anyway, I doubt if it'll be missed.

The delayed sale of the Noordhoek Singapore to a Nigerian company brought some financial problems to Noordhoek.
Guess everything should be sorted around this time.
