Sibanye-Stillwater Strike | NUM threatens to strike

JOHANNESBURG - The country's largest mining employer Sibanye-Stillwater says it will not move on its wage offer despite union members voting to go on strike at its gold operations.

The National Union of Mineworkers has told eNCA that unions are set to down tools next Thursday.

The NUM and mineworker union AMCU make the bulk workers at the mines gold operations.

The NUM says it will issue a strike notice to Sibanye on Monday if its wage demands are not met.

Unions are demanding a R1,000 increase each year over three years.

Sibanye is offering R700 for category 4 to 8 workers.

The firm this week announced a record R33-billion rand profit in 2021, but it says it cannot fund wage increases in the gold sector from its platinum operations.
