South Africa: Num Signed a Three-Year Wage Agreement With AngloGold Ashanti

press release

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) yesterday signed a three-year wage agreement with AngloGold Ashanti, ending a two months long marathon of negotiations with the company.

The NUM has reached an agreement with AngloGold Ashanti that will result in workers in the categories 4-8 (surface and underground workers) monthly wages increase by R1000 while wages for miners, officials and artisans will be increased by 6.5%.

With regard to the other three remaining companies (Harmony, Sibanye Stillwater and Village Main Reef), the NUM can confirm that negotiations are still going on. The NUM will be meeting again with these companies next week (26 September 2018) through facilitation by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation, and Arbitration (CCMA).

We thank our members for giving us a mandate to sign this wage agreement. The life for better wages and better conditions is a life and death struggle. The NUM will continue waging a relentless struggle to improve better wages and working conditions of all mineworkers in South Africa.
