Sibanye-Stillwater is considering the memorandum of demands submitted to the Minerals Council South Africa (MCSA) by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) on Tuesday.

AMCU marched to the MCSA to submit the memorandum, while its members continue to strike at Sibanye’s gold operations over wages. The strike is now in its tenth week.

Reuters also reported on Tuesday that AMCU had threatened to extend a one-day secondary strike at Sibanye’s platinum operations if its demands are not met.

“We have engaged extensively with AMCU regarding wage increases at the gold operations since July 2018. Since the strike started, we have had a number of engagements setting out the company’s position and, at all times, we have responded promptly to their written requests.

“Our position remains consistent and we urge AMCU to use the recognised platforms for further engagement on ways to end this damaging strike,” Sibanye CEO Neal Froneman commented.
