An­glo work­ers to march to­day

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
