Unions meet Sibanye on latest wage offer

Johannesburg – The country’s largest miner, Sibanye-Stillwater, will know on Tuesday if striking workers will accept its latest wage offer.

It increased its offer to the lowest paid workers from R700 to R800 per month for three years, and also added a R50 increase to its living out allowance.

Thousands of miners affiliated to NUM and AMCU downed tools six weeks ago. They have lost just under R1-billion in wages.

Government has so far lost R113-million in income tax revenue and related levies.
