NUM, Exxaro Coal reach wage agreement

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) concluded a two-year wage deal with Exarro Coal on Monday, it said in a statement.

“The agreement entails a 10.5% wage increment for grade eight, 10% for grade seven, 9% for grade five and six, as well as 8% for grades three and four,” said spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka.

At the centre of the wage disputes was the demand that four of Exarro Coal’s operations that currently do not belong to the Chamber of Mines should join it.

Seshoka said that an agreement was reached for a task team to be set up within three months to help ensure that those operations joined the Chamber of Mines by 2013.

These mining operations were Tshikondeni, Leeupan, Inyanda and Grootgeluk. — Sapa
