New Denel contract with SAAF confirmed – 384 skilled jobs to go

The State-owned Denel defence industrial group announced on Thursday that it had reached a new agreement with the South African Air Force (SAAF) to replace the current Denel Personnel Solutions/Aero Manpower Group (DPS/AMG) contract, which expires at the end of March. The new arrangement will see the SAAF retain the services of 139 of the 523 aircraft specialists currently employed under the DPS/AMG contract. The remaining 384 workers will lose their jobs. DPS/AMG falls under aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul company Denel Aviation. DPS has provided skilled maintenance personnel to the SAAF under the AMG contract since 1986. The 139 workers to be retained were selected on the basis of the skills required by the SAAF, and they will be complemented by air force personnel. “This is indeed a breakthrough,” stated Denel Aviation CEO Mike Kgobe. “With this solution we are able to ensure that the jobs of some of our employees across a number of categories and locations are retained with the requisite order cover.”
