Johannesburg - Platinum miner Lonmin has signed a two-year wage agreement with workers affiliated to trade union Solidarity, the union said on Wednesday.

"Employees... mainly mineworkers, artisans and officials will receive an 8 percent increase and members of management will receive an increase of 6.5 percent," said spokesman Louis Pretorius.

The wage increase agreement would depend on the workers' job level and performance during 2012 and 2013.

"The wage agreement must be implemented retroactively as of October 1, 2011. When the agreement was signed, Solidarity requested that it be implemented during December's pay-run, if possible," he said.

Pretorius said other issues including sick leave, housing and employee share ownership would be discussed at a later stage.
