NUM signs agreement with Evander Gold Mines

Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) on Tuesday signed a three-year wage agreement with Pan African Resources (Evander Gold Mines) under the auspices of the Chamber of Mines.

This agreement is effective from July 1 2015 to June 30 2018.

In terms of the agreement, low category surface and underground workers will get R700 increases in the next three years.

Officials on B1 to B3 category would also get R700 annual increases in the three years. Miners, artisans and officials would get 6% increases on the standard rate of pay or the consumer price index, whichever is greater.

"The NUM wishes to express its sincere gratitude to its members at Evander Gold Mine for the manner in which they behaved during the negotiation period until they gave us the mandate to sign this agreement. Our members are excited and they gave us the mandate to sign this agreement,” said NUM general secretary David Sipunzi.
