amcu thumb medium80 81ANA reports that wage negotiations between the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) and Sibanye-Stillwater reached a deadlock once again on Thursday.  

"No agreement has been reached and wage talks continue," Amcu said in a terse statement.  This came as Amcu, along with other unions in the gold mining sector, continued wage conciliation processes with Sibanye, Harmony Gold and Village Main Reef under the auspices of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).  On Monday, Amcu, Solidarity and Uasa signed a three-year wage agreement with AngloGold Ashanti, which secured the lowest-paid workers increments of R1,000 a year over three years.  The unions also achieved a 6.5% increase for miners & artisans and for officials.  The National Union of Mineworkers is no longer part of conciliation processes as it declared a dispute with the gold producers.
