NUM considers Northam Platinum’s new wage offer

2013-11-07 08:30

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is consulting members on a revised wage offer from Northam Platinum mine.

“The company tabled a revised offer on Tuesday. The offer will be subjected to internal discussions in line with organisational protocol,” said chief negotiator Ecliff Tantsi today.

He said workers would meet at 9am at Northam Platinum to be briefed about the latest revised offer.

NUM members went on strike on Sunday at Northam Platinum’s Zondereinde mine in Limpopo, demanding an increase of R2100 for core workers, such as rock drill operators, and R2000 for non-core workers.

The union also wanted the R2200 living-out allowance increased to R3718.

The company offered 6.5% for non-core and seven percent for core workers.

“Subsequent to the mass meeting, NUM will engage again with company management with a new mandate,” he said.

He said the strike continued while the union was seeking a new mandate.
