Eyewitness News reporter Theto Mahlakoana gives an update from the briefing by the union.

Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) has referred the ongoing platinum wage negotiations with Anglo American Platinum and Sibanye-Stillwater to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

Eyewitness News reporter Theto Mahlakoana says the union has criticised the planned retrenchments by Sibanye-Stillwater in Marikana.

[Amcu president Joseph] Mathunjwa is saying workers are willing to accept anything which is above R1,000 per annum in increases. We could see a multi-term agreement which will bring some stability in the sector.

Theto Mahlakoana, Reporter - Eyewitness News

What's positive in this instance is that the union has stressed that it is looking for an amicable solution to this and saying a strike is not the only option.
