Johannesburg - World No 2 platinum producer Impala Platinum [JSE:IMP]
said on Thursday it was giving workers a “pay adjustment” and details would follow, against the backdrop of a wave of illegal strikes sweeping South Africa’s mining sector.
“Yes we have, that’s correct,” Implats spokesperson Bob Gilmour told Reuters when asked if a pay adjustment had been made.
He said he could not provide details because the company “was in a process of doing that”.
A union organiser at Implats told Reuters the offer was for across-the-board increases and that workers seemed happy with the offer.
