numANA reports that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Wednesday that it would be approaching the North Gauteng High Court as an intervening party, or ‘friend of the court’, in the matter of the interdict application by the Chamber of Mines against the implementation of the 2017 Reviewed Mining Charter.  

The NUM said it had decided to approach the court after studying the founding and responding affidavits of both the Chamber and the Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane.  The NUM’s head of transformation Luthando Brukwe said in a statement that the union’s legal team would on Thursday be presenting to the court reasons why it should be admitted and would also assure the court that its participation would not delay or postpone the scheduled dates.  Brukwe added that, although the NUM was not going to oppose the Chamber’s application, the union would be making critical submissions which it hoped would assist the court in adjudicating the matter.
