The National Union of
Mineworkers is at loggerheads Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union
after it accused Anglo American Platinum of scheming with the union.
This as Anglo Platinum is
planning to retrench about four-hundred and seventy-four workers.
NUM’s Rustenburg Regional
Coordinator Mxhasi Sithethi said in 2013 AMCU decided to embark on a strike
misleading workers around retrenchment.
Sithethi said when people are
about to be retrenched, you do not start striking because retrench means that
the employer or capital is not in need of the labour, therefore leading the
workers into a strike is really suicidal.
Sithethi said they concluded
an agreement after a two week strike with Anglo Platinum agreeing that they are
going to be a reclamation process, meaning some workers are going to be
absorbed into the company to reclaim some machinery in the workstation.
