Construction: Retrenchments Spread to Granite Industry

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

The trade union Solidarity today announced with regret that retrenchments have now also spread to the granite industry. This follows after Marlin Granite’s Kudu Granite Operations near Rustenburg yesterday informed trade unions of retrenchments at the company. In a Section 189 notice issued to trade unions yesterday, the company indicated that they were planning on retrenching 59 of their total workforce of 390. This is more than 15% of their total workforce.


“It is tragic that the retrenchment crisis has now also hit the granite industry,” said Jaco Kleynhans, spokesperson of Solidarity. “Kudu Granite Operations is one of the largest granite companies in the country and retrenchments at the company paint a gloomy picture for the rest of the industry,” Kleynhans added.

At the first consultation with the company on 19 February, Solidarity will recommend that the company issue a Section 52 notice, in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, to notify the Department of Minerals and Energy of the planned retrenchments. Solidarity will also request that the company present its social plan to the trade union in order to determine whether or not the Section 189 process can be mitigated.
