“While NUM will keep to its culture of negotiations, it is ready to fight for its demands,” National Union of Mineworkers’ spokesman Livhuwani Mammburu said.

He said the demands would be made public once its members had finished their meeting.

“We are looking forward to positive and matured negotiations to deal with real demands.”

Mammburu said the NUM was the majority union at all three of the company’s mines: Sishen, Kolomela, and Thabazimbi.

Kumba spokesman Gert Schoeman said the company would comment once negotiations were underway.
