Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has signed a three-year wage agreement with gold miner Sibanye Gold, the union said late on Wednesday.
This agreement is effective from 1 of July 2015 to 30 June 2018. The Chamber of Mines was negotiating on behalf of Sibanye Gold [JSE:SGL].
Sibanye is, however, yet to agree on a deal with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction (Amcu). Amcu, the second largest union in the gold sector, has said that it is ready to call a strike at gold operations.
