NUM concludes a three-year wage agreement with Sibanye Gold

The National Union of Mineworkers  (NUM)  signed a  3- year wage agreement today with Sibanye Gold under the auspices of the Chamber of Mines.
 
This agreement is effective from the 1st of July 2015 to 30 June 2018

“The NUM wishes to express its sincere gratitude  to its members at Sibanye Gold for the manner in which they behaved during the negotiation period until they gave us the mandate to sign this  wage agreement. Our members are excited and they gave us the mandate to sign wage agreement,” said David Sipunzi, NUM General Secretary.

"The pressure that the NUM exerted to Sibanye Gold through the rolling mass actions to force the company and the Chamber of Mines to sign the wage agreement has yielded good results for our members," Sipunzi added.

The agreement is as follows:

NUM members at Sibanye Gold are excited that the wage agreement was concluded without any strike, violence, intimidation and loss of life. The 2015 wage negotiations were very tough as a result the negotiations took 5 months to be concluded. They were the longest wage negotiations in the history NUM and the Chamber of Mines.
