Johannesburg - National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) members handed a memorandum to the management and leadership of Minopex during a march in Sunninghill, Johannesburg, on Tuesday.

"The march went well. Everything was peaceful and we had no problems," NUM organiser Elias Mfikoe said.

"We handed over the memorandum and the company accepted it shortly after 14:00."

Mfikoe said workers' grievances included salary discrepancies. They also wanted the NUM to be recognised according to regions.

He said about 250 NUM members participated in the march.

Minopex operates and maintains minerals and metals processing plants, and employs more than 2 000 people in South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Mozambique and Tanzania.
