Workers affiliated to the NUM are demanding a hike of around 40 percent.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and management of Northam Platinum mine are due to meet at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) today in an attempt to resolve their ongoing wage dispute.
Workers affiliated to the NUM have been on strike for around a month and have vowed to continue with the strike action until their demands are met.
They are demanding a hike of around 40 percent while the employer is offering less than 10 percent.
The NUM's Livhuwani Mammburu said the CCMA commissioner called both parties to try and resolve the dispute.
"We are always hoping for a positive outcome because we want to resolve this wage dispute as soon as possible."
