The NUM submitted wage demands on 13 April and accuses Exxaro of failing to resolve the subsequent wage dispute.  "The union demands a wage increase of 10%, a service increment of 0.5%, housing increase of 10% or R5,000, a standby allowance of 10%, family responsibility leave of eight days, and a long-service award for 15 years of one Krugerrand," NUM deputy general secretary William Mabapa indicated in a statement.  The strike will begin at 06:00 on Thursday, 14 September 2017.
