NUM Highveld Regional leadership to address workers on the decision taken by the Business Rescue Practitioners to suspend JIC Mining Services.
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Highveld regional leadership will tomorrow (Thursday) address a mass meeting at Optimum Coal Mine in Mpumalanga. The mass meeting is organised after the decision by Business Rescue Practitioners to serve JIC Mining Services with a letter to suspend its services until further notice. This decision by the Business Rescue Practitioners will affect 480 employees employed by JIC Mining Services.
Sections 151 and 152 of the Companies Act requires that the Business Rescue Practitioner must convene a meeting and present a business rescue plan within 35 days, to date the NUM has lost counts and the plan has not come forth. This clearly indicates that business rescue practitioners do not have interest in saving the business but make money while the majority of workers are left jobless.
Details of the mass meeting are as follows:Date: 31 May 2018Venue: Optimum Coal Mine in MpumalangaTime: 8:30 am Members of the media are invited to attend and report
