It noted that the agreement was aligned with industry settlements and took into consideration the reality of inflationary pressures faced by its employees. “The wage agreement secures five years of stability at Zondereinde and has been achieved through a collaborative, respectful and constructive engagement process between Northam and the NUM, without requiring intervention or mediation by third parties,” said Northam CEO Paul Dunne.
