numFin24 reports that over 150 members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) have resurfaced after staging an underground sit-in at the Zululand Anthracite Colliery (ZAC) that started on 10 October.  

The NUM said on Sunday in a statement that 153 miners ended their sit-in at 11pm on Saturday night, after spending five days below ground to protest the value of their long service payments.  Msawenkosi Nkabinde, NUM branch secretary at the colliery, said the mine’s management had agreed to increase the value of the long service payments.  After a "robust engagement with the employer" an agreement was apparently reached that the workers would not be fired for embarking on a sit-in.
