Johannesburg - Royal Bafokeng said on Friday
that normal operations at its Bafokeng Rasimone platinum mine had resumed
following the end of the industrial action.
The successful resolution between management‚ unions and
representatives of striking employees was facilitated by the Rustenburg
municipality conflict resolution committee.
The resolutions taken are as follows:
- An undertaking that approximately 500 employees who
participated in unprotected strike action will return to work;
- That the existing three-year wage agreement will be
honoured by all parties‚ namely‚ management‚ unions and the aggrieved
employees‚ and that no new wage demands will be tabled or entertained;
- Parties agree to continue with discussions within the existing
employee relations structures where other matters not related to issues
contained in the wage agreement will be addressed; and
- All employees will be allowed to return to work.
Allegations of intimidation will continue to be independently investigated and
appropriate action will be taken if required.
The company said in spite of the loss of approximately
14‚000 tonnes planned to have been hoisted over the three days at North shaft‚
total tonnes milled for the month should remain unaffected due to a stockpile
being processed during this period.
