• Mini budget: Lost trust

    The elephant in the room is a bigger danger to SA than weak finances, says Jaco Leuvennink.

    Government isn't doing enough so it's up to us to take responsibility, says Mandi Smallhorne.

  • Conquering prejudice

    Every workplace would benefit from a self-critical process relating to prejudices, says Ian Mann.

Chamber pleased with return to work

Johannesburg - Mines and trade unions will sign an agreement on Thursday to bring normality to the gold mining sector, the Chamber of Mines said on Monday.

"We now have to put all our efforts into stabilising the gold mining sector and returning the industry to normality," the chamber's Elize Strydom said in a statement.

The Chamber of Mines, representing AngloGold Ashanti [JSE:ANG], Gold Fields [JSE:GFI], and Harmony Gold Mining Company [JSE:HAR], met with the National Union of Mineworkers, Solidarity, and Uasa on Monday.

Strydom said the parties agreed in principle on the content of the agreement which they intended signing on Thursday.

Monday's discussions were positive and there was a collective resolve by all parties to end the unprotected strikes as soon as possible, as this is in the best interests of the employees and the companies.

"It is most pleasing to note that large numbers of employees have returned to work and strikes on a number of operations have ended," she said.

Miners went on strike in September for monthly salaries of between R12 500 and R16 000.
