The NUM is extremely angry and shocked that Anglogold Asanti is likely to retrench such a huge number of workers at the time when there is a high rate of unemployment in the country.
The NUM Anglogold Ashanti national shop stewards council will meet next week to decide the way forward.
We, therefore, call on Anglogold Ashanti to rethink its position to retrench. They must create opportunities for job creation rather maximising profits at the expense of the poor mineworkers who earn poverty wages.
The NUM will fight tooth and nail to make sure that its members are not retrenched cheaply. The NUM remain fearless, committed, dedicated and unshaken in fighting for the mineworkers. The NUM does not want to see mineworkers being retrenched.
