AMCU declares dispute in wage talks

Wage talks in the platinum sector have stalled. The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) has declared a dispute.

AMCU is demanding a three-year wage increase of R1,500 per year for entry level workers and a 10% rise per year for skilled workers as well as a number of other allowances, benefits and improvements in conditions of employment.

Business Day TV spoke to James Wellsted from Sibanye Stillwater to discuss the next step that will be taken in the negotiations following AMCU's decision to declare a dispute.
