MINING: Unions Declare a Dispute in Coal Mining Wage Negotiations

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

The three unions representing employees in the coal mining sector today declared a dispute with the companies negotiating under the auspices of the Chamber of Mines of South Africa.

The decision to declare a dispute followed the Chamber’s request that unions consider withdrawing some of the demands which had significant cost implications so that the coal mining companies could devote available resources to wages. “We increased our offer to 6% for the lowest paid employees and 5% for all other employees but the unions chose to declare a dispute”, said Dr Elize Strydom who negotiated on behalf of the coal mining companies.


Dr Strydom said she was still hopeful that the parties would reach agreement under a facilitated process. “The way forward from here is that the union will approach the CCMA to appoint a facilitator. We hope that the facilitator will be able to bring us closer together. We will meet again on 20 July 2011 under the auspices of a CCMA facilitator”, said Dr Strydom.
