NUM against Petra diamonds being given additional mining rights

Lusanda Bill
04 September 2014

The National Union of Mineworkers said it opposes in the strongest term additional mining rights application made by Petra diamonds in the North West. 

This follows the announcement by Petra that it is planning to retrench about 370 permanent employees at Helm Mine. 

Num Acting National Spokesperson Livhuwani Mammburu said the union will fight to make sure that these retrenchments do not happen. 

Mammburu said we have written a letter to the Department of Mineral Resources objecting to the company getting additional mining rights.

“As the NUM we will not be part of the retrenchment process and we will not be forced to agree to the retrenchment happening at the mine” Mammburu added.
