Press Statement, 08 March 2022

Sibanye Stillwater to face industrial action, the company will dance to the music, starting tomorrow night

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and AMCU will from tomorrow night (Wednesday 9th March) begin with their legal strike action at Sibanye Stillwater operations in the Free State and Gauteng.

The NUM can confirm that it has yesterday issued a notice in terms of section 64 of the Labour Relations Act indicating that workers will be embarking on a protected industrial action at Sibanye Stillwater operations.

The industrial action will commence on Wednesday 9th March 2022, starting with the evening shift which is set to start at 18:00. The last shift reporting for service will be the morning shift and afternoon shifts of the same date.

The reason for the industrial action relates to the matters of mutual interest which are the topic of the CCMA matter under case number GAJB186-21.

The NUM is determined to pursue its demands for an increase of R1000 for surface, underground miners and 6% for artisans, miners and officials.

The NUM has not been willing to undergo industrial action but given the arrogance of Sibanye Stillwater the union is forced to embark on nationwide industrial action that will change the gold mining landscape forever. The captains of the industry have continuously awarded themselves huge bonuses while mineworkers are earning poverty wages.

Mineworkers are determined to embark on the strike action starting from tomorrow night until their demands are met. The union has noted the arrogance of the employers in maintaining that they are unshakable in their 5% and 700 pittance offer.

The NUM is unshakable too in its demand for a living wage and as such the Sibanye's Stillwater final offer would meet the union‘s final demand and there shall be dust on the streets of Carletonville and Welkom.
