Solidarity union accepts Sibanye-Stillwater wage offer

JOHANNESBURG, March 2 (Reuters) – South Africa’s Solidarity union said on Wednesday it had accepted Sibanye-Stillwater’s latest wage offer and withdrawn from further organized industrial action.

Solidarity had been part of a coalition of unions negotiating with Sibanye over wages at its South African gold mines, but said it did not take part in a union vote on a strike on Tuesday after deciding to accept the offer.

The remaining unions – the Miners’ Association and Construction Union (AMCU), the National Union of Miners (NUM) and the UASA – have yet to announce the outcome of the vote.
