The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is extremely worried that LafargeHolcim South Africa has reneged on its commitment for salary adjustment to close the wage gaps per job category.
The NUM and LafargeHolcim South Africa signed a wage agreement this year in which the two parties agreed to set up a committee comprising of the union and the company representatives that will work together to address the wage gaps per job category.
"The company has now declared a dispute with the NUM at the CCMA. We do not know what they are challenging, we have asked them to send us a referral and they have not done so. This company does not want to comply with the equalisation of salaries as agreed in the wage agreement that the two parties signed this year," said Petrus Mositi: NUM Full-Time Shop Steward at LafargeHolcim.
The committee was given a task to closing the wage gaps per job category by conducting a thorough analysis using the proposed principles from the union and the action plan from the management. The final terms of reference were going to be concluded by the committee. LafargeHolcim South Africa was supposed to furnish the pay-scales pertaining to the bargaining unit to the committee by 01 March 2016. The exercise was supposed to be concluded by the end of April 2016.
