Meeting planned with NUM to discuss miners' demands
About 66 rock drill operators went on a four-day unprotected strike underground the mine.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) says it will meet with management of Gold One Modder East Operations on Tuesday, to discuss the demands of some of its members who've been staging an underground sit-in.
About 66 rock drill operators went on a four-day unprotected strike underground the mine, refusing to resurface until their demands are met.
Union officials went underground on Friday and successfully convinced them to exit the mine.
NUM's Livhuwani Mambmburu says, "They are still demanding the same R250 bonus per blast. A committee persuaded them to come up from underground."
