Process in place to resolve strike action at Zondereinde

Following constructive discussions between management and the NUM leadership at Zondereinde mine over the past few days, the parties have agreed to a process to bring the industrial action to a close, and to create an enabling environment to resolve the current impasse.

The conditions attached to the understanding reached include the following:

  • The principle of no work no pay will apply
  • Adherence to the Peace and Stability Framework for the Mining Industry
  • An acceptable process to deal with the issues in dispute raised during the strike

Employees will start returning to work with effect from the night shift today, Tuesday 20 January. Zondereinde general manager Danny Gonsalves welcomed the end to the industrial action and thanked all parties for the constructive discussions which led to this point.
