JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is expected to sign a three-year wage agreement with Royal Bafokeng Platinum in Sandton this morning.
This comes after a five-month long strike called by its rival union, the Association of Mining and Construction Union (Amcu), ended last month.
NUM members at operations owned by Aquarius Platinum and Impala Platinum, who were not affected by South Africa's longest mining stoppage, are also pushing for better deals.
Earlier this week an unauthorised walkout by employees at Impala's Marula mine outside Burgersfort in Limpopo, where NUM represents most workers, was partly motivated by miners seeking the same increase that Amcu extracted from the three largest platinum producers.
The NUM's Livhuwani Mammburu says, "We can confirm that we will be signing a three-year wage agreement with Royal Bafokeng Platinum today".
