The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) AngloGold Ashanti Shaft Stewards Council met today in Carletonville to deliberate on section 189(3) notice issued by AngloGold Ashanti to retrench 8 500 workers in all its South African operations.
The planned retrenchments will create more unemployment, increase poverty in the mining communities and create ghost towns with no hope to human dignity. The meeting resolved to oppose the planned retrenchments and will engage relevant government departments and the company in an effort to avoid job losses.
