PRESS STATEMENT, 08 January 2019
NUM concerned about its member's houses and cars that were burnt down at Blybank in Carletonville
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) strongly condemns the escalation of systematic attacks on its members by alleged AMCU hooligans who are exploiting the strike situation with acts of crime and barbarism at Blybank in Carletonville. There are 15 houses and 6 cars that have been burnt since the AMCU strike started last year. All 15 houses that were burnt belongs to NUM members. The NUM is concerned that NUM members houses are being burnt down every day. It is also disturbing that NUM members are also being forced to join AMCU by thugs carrying spears.
We want the company and the law enforcement agencies to take action against these thugs who have decided to target our members for reporting on duty. This intimidation against members of the NUM has been happening for some time now and our members have reached a stage where they cannot tolerate it anymore.
