Mineral Resources Minister Advocate Ngoako Ramatlhodi met with the leadership of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) in Pretoria today, as part of an ongoing consultative process to resolve the current impasse in wage negations in the North West platinum belt.
This follows meetings which the Minister has held with all parties, as well as the establishment of an intergovernmental technical team tasked with exploring all possibilities for a resolution to the protracted strike.
“I am encouraged by the progress we have made on this matter, and the cooperation of all parties involved,” the Minister said.
The Minister, who was joined at the meeting by the Deputy Minister of Labour, iNkosi Phathekile Holomisa, and the Deputy Minister of Mineral Resources Mr Godfrey Oliphant, reiterated Government’s commitment to the process.
The union was represented by, amongst others, its President Mr Joseph Mathunjwa, Treasurer Mr Jimmy Gama, Bishop Joe Seoka and Advocate Dali Mpofu.
