A MINIMUM of five employees at the tourism department in Nelson Mandela Bay will be served with retrenchment notices this week.
Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism chief executive Mandlakazi Skefile said the staff cuts had been on the cards since last year because they did not have sufficient funding for salaries to operate at full strength.
"The organisation is going through a restructuring process and the retrenchments are part of that.
"We basically looked at the offices and our tourist visitor centre, and the retrenchments are based on duplication of roles."
