Sibanye-Stillwater and organised labour – AMCU, the NUM, Solidarity and UASA – continue to engage in wage negotiations to reach a wage agreement at our Gold operations.
This process is currently taking place under the auspices of the CCMA, a process that has been followed during many wage negotiations both at a centralised collective bargaining level and during company-level negotiations across the various commodities before.
This process allows the parties a further opportunity to find each other and in most cases leads to a positive outcome. The company will continue to engage with unions throughout this process to reach a constructive outcome.
To ensure that it is in a position to continue to support the livelihoods of its gold employees and communities, contribute to the national fiscus and support the many stakeholders that depend on Sibanye-Stillwater, it is very important that it reaches an agreement that :
- Is fair
- Will benefit employees
- Ensures the long-term sustainability of gold operations
Sibanye-Stillwater calls on all stakeholders to make informed decisions in the best interest of the sustainability of its operations and collective future. The company realises that it can only make informed decisions if parties know the facts. Sibanye-Stillwater will continue to communicate honestly and openly.
