Sibanye-Stillwater concludes a five-year wage settlement at its Rustenburg and Marikana PGM operations


Sibanye-Stillwater (Tickers JSE: SSW and NYSE: SBSW – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/sibanye-stillwater-ltd/) advises that it has reached agreement with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) in respect of annual wages and benefits for employees at the Marikana and Rustenburg operations. This agreement with AMCU follows previous agreements reached with the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and UASA on 30 September 2022 and marks the conclusion of the wage negotiation processes at the Marikana and Rustenburg operations.

The final agreement is consistent with the previous five-year, inflation-linked offer, with the first three years still comprising fixed, average, annual wage increases of 6% and above for bargaining unit employees, but with increases for year four and five fixed at R1,300 (or 6%) in year four and R1,400 (or 6%) in year five, compared with the previous offer�s CPI-linked variable increases. Miners and artisans will receive average annual wage increases of 6% per annum for each of the five years. The increases in other benefits remain the same as the previous offer. The final agreement will be extended to all unionised and non-unionised employees at these operations.

Says Neal Froneman, Chief Executive Officer of Sibanye-Stillwater: “We are pleased to have concluded these wage negotiations timeously and expediently, without disruption or the need for third party intervention. The annual wage and benefit increases that have been agreed are in line with inflation and secure a five-year period of stability at the Rustenburg and Marikana operations, which will be beneficial for all stakeholders.”

“The agreement reached with AMCU and other representative organised labour unions, is consistent with the recent wage increases concluded at our SA gold operations, a precursor to these negotiations, with a total estimated average increase in the wage bill, including all benefits, over the five-year period of approximately 6.3% per annum.”
