Sibanye-Stillwater [JSE:SGL] has extended its gold wage agreement with the National Union of Mineworkers, UASA and Solidarity to all employees at the company's gold operations, the company said in a statement on Thursday. 

This means members of the Association of Construction and Mineworkers Union and those employees not represented by the union will be party to the agreement, which ended the strike started by AMCU, Sibanye said.

According to the SENS announcement released by the company, during the strike the collective membership of the NUM, UASA and Solidarity increased to over 50% of the employees at the South African gold operations.

"Under these circumstances, the Labour Relations Act provides for the wage agreement to be extended to and bind all other employees to the collective agreement," said the statement.

The statement said all employees who were members of AMCU, as well as those who were not members of any trade union, were bound by the collective agreement.

"As a result of the extension of the wage agreement, the AMCU strike is no longer protected and all employees are required to report for work. Employees have been notified to report for work on Saturday, December 15, 2018," the statement said.
