NUM signs memorandum of understanding with KDC mineworkers | News Article
The leadership of the National Union of Mine Workers signed a memorandum of understanding with striking workers at KDC East mine last evening.

Gold Fields spokesperson Billy Jacobs said the memorandum technically means that the strike is meant to be over and workers would resume their duties on Tuesday.

NUM president Senzeni Zokwana said it does not necessarily mean that the strike is over, it is just an understanding. A NUM team met the representatives of the striking workers yesterday, but some of the workers did not agree to the conditions.

It would be clearer later today whether there are any real progress toward ending the strike. Workers at Gold Fields have been on a wildcat strike for 11 days, in demand of a monthly salary of R12,500 after deductions.
