Johannesburg – Trust is at the centre of improving labour relations in the mining industry, according to Andile Sangqu, vice president of the South African Chamber of Mines.

Sangqu spoke to Fin24 at the Joburg Indaba held on Wednesday in Sandton. He said it is necessary to have good relationships with unions and employees to boost productivity in the sector.

“We need an engaged workforce. We need to communicate and discuss the strategy and vision with workers,” he said. Part of building relationships with workers involves acknowledging the wrongs that have taken place in the past. “There are a lot of legacy issues … we need to commit ourselves to work together with labour to create solutions.”
