NUM met with AngloGold Ashanti today regarding Section 189 Notice.
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) met with AngloGold Ashanti today regarding Section 189 notice to retrench 849 workers.
The purpose of the meeting was to seek avoidance measures that will minimise the retrenchment of workers to zero.
The NUM and AngloGold Ashanti have agreed that workers will be transferred to other business units within the company and the other workers will be reskilled for other jobs.
"This is work in progress and we will continue meeting with the company to protect worker's job security," said Tafa Moya, NUM Mining Coordinator at AngloGold Ashanti.
