• Mini budget: Lost trust

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

  • Time to tackle floods

    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.

Amplats job cuts on hold for now

 
Johannesburg - The retrenchment of nearly 14 000 minerworkers at Anglo Platinum [JSE:AMS](Amplats) was postponed on Monday to allow for a detailed consultation process to take place.

The mineral resources department, Amplats and unions met on Monday and decided to postpone the Section 189 process under the Labour Relations Act.

"[The meeting resolved to] expedite the consultation process and take no more than 60 days, beginning January 30," they said in a joint statement.

"The tripartite members re-committed to engage constructively for the benefit of all stakeholders and will communicate progress updates as and when appropriate."

The unions represented at Amplats are the National Union of Mineworkers, the Associated Mineworkers & Construction Union, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa and UASA.

Amplats announced the retrenchments on January 15.

The vast majority of job cuts - 13 000 - would be lost around Rustenburg, that was at the centre of violent labour unrest last August and September.
