The National Union of Mineworkers said the decision by mining companies in the Northern Cape to retrench workers is unacceptable and shocking.

The union alleges that the Assmang Blackrock mine is intending to retrench three-hundred and five workers which would result in three-thousand-seven-hundred and fifty families being affected.

NUM’s Kimberley Regional Coordinator Lucas Phiri said NUM is shocked with the decision the mines are taking in the Northern Cape to dismiss numbers under this drought were people are unemployed.

Phiri said they believe that these mines have been making profit for quite sometime, but when things do not go well from their side the first people to suffer is the ordinary mineworkers on the ground.
