Battle for survival

Battle for survival

The strike by mineworkers along the platinum belt is on its fourth month. It seem as if there is no solution to the strike. Few days ago we were praying when the companies involved made a new offer for Amcu president to accept the offer. We are definitely tired of the strike, it all depends on him now because as the president of this union he has the power to convince his members.

The question on some of us who are no longer interested in the strike,” is it still about us or there is a political agenda involved or pride on AMCU? Definitely there is a political agenda in favour of EFF, if Amcu  accepts the offer ,it will back fire on Amcu, thereby affects the support of EFF, the current offer is definitely not different  to what NUM was getting before. To be honest with myself, Amcu will never get R12500 that’s why I say its no longer about us as employees, it’s about the credibility of AMCU and EFF. It’s lye that Amcu does not support any political party. Mathunjwa talks about CEO,s and directors getting huge amounts of money  think that has got nothing to do with us as ordinary employees and its an international trend, only the government can deal and legislate that or a national strike  but I honestly believe that will never happen.

They say when two bulls fight each other, usually, it’s the grass that suffers  the most. People I know have sold their valuable items, cars repossessed by banks, people are getting hungry, kids at private schools have been kicked out of school. it’s time the government legislate or gives the minister the power to decide on the duration of the strike, three months on strike is too much on us .Honestly mineworkers are mostly illiterate people, who are easily convinced ,they can only go forward but are not aware of outside politics
