AMCU seeks double pay for workers at Sibanye Gold
South African Mine Union, AMCU is once again ruffling feathers in the country's mining industry. The Union accepted a wage offer from one of the country's big gold mining companies.But it agreed to do so outside of the collective bargaining council. AMCU, insists that the fight for decent wages for mineworkers will continue. The union says that it decided to ditch the central bargaining process and negotiate directly with Sibanye because it was not happy with the offer on the table. The lowest paid workers at Sibanye Gold earn a basic cash wage of around $400. AMCU is fighting to double that.The South African Chamber of Mines negotiates with unions on behalf of the gold mining sector. However during negotiations last year, AMCU refused to sign a wage agreement, while the other three main unions went ahead

Strike At South Africa's Platinum Mines
Platinum production in South Africa has stopped, with up to 100,000 workers affected by a strike at three of the world's biggest mines. Workers at Impala Platinum, Anglo American Platinum and Lonmin mines embarked on an indefinite strike from early Thursday, after their demand to double the minimum monthly wage to $1,200 was rejected. The wage dispute has pitted South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) against mining firms, in a conflict neither can afford to lose. The strike is aimed at "forcing the employers to the negotiating table", said AMCU secretary general Jeff Mpahlele. It is the largest strike since the 2012 illegal wage protest of Marikana, where 34 miners were shot dead, and the country's deputy president has said the government will act "decisively" to enforce law and order. Kgalema Motlanthe said at a labour conference on Wednesday that relations between workers and employers would only get worse if the two sides dug in their heels. In an address to the Leadership of Trade Union Federations, he said: "The mining sector in our country has been in turmoil and in some instances there has been lots of loss of life. "Many people were of the view that mining industry is on a decline. I was then asked by the president to try and bring all relevant stakeholders in the mining sector to try and bring some stability. "In the main my task was to try and ensure that mine workers exercise their bargaining rights without fear of victimisation and that organised labour movements are able to embark on their activities free from violence. In this regard, we had to bring everybody together around the table to agree on path to restore stability in the mining sector." A separate AMCU strike, in the gold sector, had also been planned for Thursday but was delayed following a court ruling.

Mixed expectations as long awaited law is approved in South Africa
South Africa's long delayed Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Amendment Bill has been passed. The bill is expected to improve regulation of social and labour plans to optimise the effect of the mining industry to development. President Jacob Zuma referred the bill back to parliament after several constitutional concerns were raised during the public consultation phase. It will now be sent to the national council of provinces for confirmation. In a statement Minerals Minister Mosebenzi Zwane said this was a positive step towards entrenching certainty for investors in the mining and upstream petroleum industries. There are doubts however over whether it will provide the regulatory certainty needed to boost a declining mining sector.

Platinum Workers In South Africa Strike Over Payments
The biggest union in South Africa's platinum sector calls a strike over pay, potentially, halting production at the world's top three producers. Amcu says its 70,000 members will go on an indefinite strike, starting on Thursday. It is demanding a "living wage" of 12,500 rand ($1,150; £700) - more than double their current pay. Mining companies have said they cannot afford the increases due to increasing production costs and stagnated demand. Finance Minister Pravin Ghordan has called on both sides to work together to avert another strike. "We can least afford another round of strikes that will act as a destabilisation to the platinum sector which has had increasing difficulties over the last 18 months," he said in a radio interview with the state broadcaster's SAFM. If the strike goes ahead, this would be the most severe labour turmoil since 44 people died during a strike at Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine in 2012, says the BBC's Pumza Fihlani in Johannesburg. The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) replaced the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) as the biggest union in the platinum sector during the Marikana protests. Mineworkers criticised NUM, with is affiliated to the governing African National Congress of being too friendly with business. As President Jacob Zuma and the ANC prepare for elections due in April, he cannot afford the negative publicity this strike would bring, our correspondent says. The party was sharply criticised for not doing enough to prevent the "Marikana massacre" . South Africa holds about 80% of the world's known platinum reserves and is the fourth-biggest gold exporter.
