Wage offer leaves Amcu disappointed




Radio

Platinum mining companies will possibly not meet all wage negotiation demands.

Majority platinum trade union Amcu is in wage negotiations with the major PGM producers, including AngloAmerican Platinum, Impala Platinum and Sibanye Stillwater. The trade union articulated in June that ti’s looking for a minimum salary for the lowest-earning of R17,000 a month. They’re also looking to solidify their benefits and want issues around mine health and safety improved. 

The mining companies are not offering what Amcu wants, with the union referring to the massive earnings gains the companies have enjoyed of late. Nompu Siziba discusses the matter in more detail with Chris Jacobs, a director at OIM International.
