Over 30 000 National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) members will down tools from the coal sector tomorrow on Sunday at 6 pm. The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation, and Arbitration (CCMA) issued a certificate of non-resolution to the dispute this week.
The conciliation came to an abrupt end this week when the parties could not reach an agreement over the R1000 for the lowest category and 14% for the artisans, miners and officials demand by the NUM.
The companies responded as follows: Anglo Coal and Glencore are offering the lowest paid workers an increment of 8,5% and for the artisans, miners and officials is 7%. Exxaro Coal Mpumalanga is offering 8% for the lowest category and 7,5% for the artisans, miners and officials. Kangra is offering 7,5 % for the lowest category and 7% for the artisans, miners and officials. Koornfontein mine and Delmas are offering 5% for all categories. Msobo Mine is offering 7% for the lowest category and 5% for the artisans, miners and officials.
We also want to take this opportunity to strongly condemn Anglo Coal for lying to our members saying that the strike has been suspended until Monday next week. The strike is not suspended and it will continue as planned on Sunday at 6 pm tomorrow.
