Lonmin announces that informal undertakings have been reached in principle with the leadership of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) in respect of wages and conditions of employment.
AMCU will be discussing these in principle undertakings with its members to seek a mandate.
The same in principle undertakings have been received by our peer PGM producers, Anglo American Platinum Limited (Amplats) and Impala Platinum Holding Limited (Impala), who will make their own announcements in the normal way.
The principles that underpin the proposals seek to achieve a sustainable future for the three platinum companies for the benefit of all stakeholders and to afford employees the best possible increase under the current financial circumstances.
The companies expect to receive feedback from AMCU on Friday, 13 June. Thereafter, and should an agreement be reached, the companies will be assisting employees to ensure a safe return to a normal working environment.
Further details will be made available once feedback is received from AMCU.
