No results after first round of gold wage talks
Details of a comprehensive deal are currently being studied after a three day meeting.
JOHANNESBURG - Details of a comprehensive deal to gold mining unions during ongoing wage talks are currently being studied after a three day meeting between the Chamber of Mines, unions and mine bosses.
The parties met in Boksburg where the unions made presentations on their demands and the chamber outlined what the deal encompasses.
It's based on the sustainability of the sector and includes extra money for workers when the gold price rises and no guarantees if it drops.
National Union of Metalworkers spokesperson Livhuwani Mammburu says the first round of talks did not yield any results.
"They promised to table their offer to the union next week Monday. Nothing much has happened. The chamber has not tabled its offer to us. We have nothing much that we can report to our members."
