Anglo workers to march today
THOUSANDS of union members will march to the offices of Anglo Coal’s owner, Anglo American, today to present a memorandum of demands, the National Union of Mineworkers said.
These included that Anglo Coal implement agreements reached at the Chamber of Mines.
“Among these agreements is the 2002/2003 agreement relating to child care facilities and funeral cover for dependants,” the NUM said.
“It is our conviction that hence there has been an agreement on child care facilities, the company must build these facilities as a matter of urgency as non-compliance has compromised the dignity of its woman workers,” said Lefty Mashego, the NUM’s Anglo Coal mining house co-ordinator in the region.
