exxaroSABC News reports that diversified miner Exxaro has tabled a new offer in respect of its employees at the Grootegeluk coal mine, in Lephalale and the Leeuwpan coal mine, in Delmas Mpumalanga, in a bid to end a strike over a salary increase.  

Thousands of NUM members downed tools on Thursday demanding a 10% wage increase against the company’s offer of 6.5%.  National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) deputy general secretary, William Mabapa, indicated:  "They have given us an offer that we do not want to disclose in the media, but we are going to give feed back to the workers on Monday and we will meet again (with management) on Monday to give feedback.  Depending on the outcome, we will take it from there, but we are optimistic that we may resolve the strike on Monday."
