Lonmin tables new wage offer

Sep 14 2012 20:15

Johannesburg - Platinum producer Lonmin on Friday night tabled a second wage offer to striking workers.

Rock drill operators (RDO) were offered a R1 875 increase and underground workers R1 321 more.

"A3 graded workers [general workers] will get R9 485 increased from R8 164... " the company said in a statement. "A4 graded workers [RDOs] will get an increase from R9 063 to R10 938."

Workers downed tools more than four weeks ago, demanding a salary increase of R12 500.

The first wage offer of a R900 increase across the board was rejected by workers earlier on Friday.

Unions had not yet decided on the second offer and consultation on it was to resume on Monday at 10:00, the company said.
