The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Kimberley Region has concluded and signed a five-year wage agreement on behalf of its members at globally diversified mining and metals company South32’s Hotazel Manganese Mines, in the Northern Cape.

The union says the parties agreed to the harmonisation of B-Lower level employees, effective from June 1.

B-Band employees will receive a wage increase of 7% in year one of the agreement, a 6.5% increase in year two and 6% in years three, four and five.
