The National Union of Mineworkers
has condemned Impala Platinum for condoning and promoting violence at its
operations in Rustenberg.
According to NUM the company is
currently clocking in for workers who were arrested for attacking the NUM shop
stewards in January.
NUM said management at Impala
Platinum is doing this to encourage them to continue with their actions as well
as to avoid dismissals on the basis of absenteeism.
NUM’s Eddie Majadibodu said that inn
their view, Impala had been involved in sponsoring the violence in the
“Impala has denied the NUM its constitutional
right to have access to its members and to organize openly, where as it allowed
the rival union AMCU to have offices and full time positions, for us this is
unethical behaviour by a company as big as Impala Platinum mine” Majabodu said
