amcu thumb medium80 81EWN reports that the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) has questioned the agreement signed between the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Sibanye-Stillwater, which comes as the company seeks to end a strike by Amcu members at its local gold operations.  

The union said it had been made aware of an agreement signed between the NUM and the company, adding however that workers belonging to the majority union were from Amcu and they remained on strike.  Amcu urged other unions to not be used by the company in what it said was its attempts to divide them.  Amcu workers have been on strike over wages since November.  The union’s President Joseph Mathunjwa said:  “Because this is what these people are doing, they are pinning the working class against each other and at the end of the day, they want to blame Amcu for the violence.  Our members will continue with the strike as long as we haven’t received any fresh mandate from them. A luta continua.”
