The National Union of Mineworkers said it welcomes the decision by the Labour Court in Johannesburg in stopping Lonmin from evicting the NUM offices at its Eastern and Western Platinum mines in Rustenburg. 

Judge Justice Basson on Wednesday ordered that the 90 day period contemplated in terms of clause 12.1 of the recognition agreement will run from the 16th of April to the 16th of July. 

NUM Spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka said they welcome the judgment more especially that the company was succumbing to presure to have to leave the premises.

Seshoka added that the court has given Num a lifeline to continue to recruit and service the union members and had the union been ordered to leave this week it would have been a breach of contract in terms of the existing recognition agreement.
