The National Union of Mineworkers was founded in 1982.

Its birth was facilitated by comrades Cyril Ramaphosa who rose to be its first General Secretary, James Motlatsi who turned to be its first President, and Elijah Barayi who became its Vice President and later the President of Cosatu in 1985 when the federation was formed. porn

NUM PWV region declares wage deadlock with geomechanics

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) PWV Region has declared a deadlock in wage negotiations with Geomechanics, an industry leader in geotechnical investigations in Southern Africa.

Geomechanics provides drilling and testing services to the minerals exploration market, as well as geotechnical and civil industries in and around Southern Africa and Africa.

The NUM PWV Region is demanding a wage increase of R900 across the board whereas the company is offering R400 which we deem as an insult to workers at large.

Other demands are the immediate payment of the 2020 and 2021 13th cheques, the abolishing of usage of tents, and for the employees to be booked at BnBs while on duty.

We also demand the payments of all travelling hours as overtime, especially Sunday hours. The employer must ensure that employees get their well-deserved monthly days off to ensure that they can visit their families. The employer must also abolish what is called intermittent contracts.

“As leaders of the PWV Region, we met the company yesterday (Monday) and the company continues to demonstrate arrogance. It seems the company is not ready to move on its offer of R400. Our members are determined to fight tooth and nail until their demands are met,” said NUM PWV Regional Deputy Secretary Mlulameli Mweli.
