Unions must act on Amplats job cuts

 
Johannesburg – Anglo Platinum [JSE:AMS] (Amplats) is discussing its planned retrenchment of nearly 14 000 mineworkers with concerned parties on Monday.

"Anglo Platinum confirms that it is engaged in discussions with its key stakeholders, labour unions and government, regarding the portfolio review. Updates will be issued as and when appropriate," spokesperson Mpumi Sithole said.

A formal announcement on whether talks had succeeded in saving jobs was expected on Monday.

According to a report on Sunday, Amplats had put the planned retrenchments on hold for two months.

Unnamed sources told The Sunday Independent that Amplats chief executive Chris Griffiths had written to affected unions confirming Amplats' decision to allow a two-month moratorium on its restructuring.

Amplats announced the retrenchments on January 15.

The vast majority of job cuts - 13 000 in all - would be lost around Rustenburg, that was at the centre of violent labour unrest last August and September.

According to The Sunday Independent, part of Amplats' new agreement could include setting up a task team to investigate the findings on the profitability of the two shafts it planned to shut.
