The National Union of Mineworkers said its internal consultation with its members regarding wage demands is taking longer than anticipated.

This as the union has delayed submitting its wage demand to the Chamber of Mines.

Meanwhile workers at Medupi power station in Lephalale, Limpopo were on Wednesday locked out after the demanded a bonus for the completion of Unit Six of the power station.

NUM National Spokesperson Livhuwani Mammburu said it has always been traditional behaviour to first consult its members because they are the ones who give us the mandate of what they want to see in their wage demand.

Mammburu said our wage demands will be submitted to the Chamber of Mines before the end of our plan and we expect that the opening wage negotiations ground to start towards the last week of May.
