Harmony urges miners to return to work

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (‘Harmony’ and/or ‘the Company’ today announced that its employees had accepted the final wage offer made by the Chamber of Mines. Employees who are members of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) embarked on industrial action on 3 September 2013, which has affected all but Harmony’s Kusasalethu mine. Harmony would like to urge all its employees who had embarked on the wage strike to start reporting for work as from tonight.

Members of the NUM have accepted the same offer made by other producers in the industry, and have returned to work.

Harmony chief executive officer, Graham Briggs, extended a personal plea to employees. “Harmony increased its offer in respect of wages and benefits in line with other producers, in the interests of long term industrial relations stability, safety and security in the sector, and on condition that employees returned to work.”

“But”, he indicated, “continued industrial action will make this increase unaffordable, and place the future viability of some of our operations under threat. This, in turn, could have an impact on jobs.”
