Anglo Gold Ashanti’s workers not left out in the cold

UASA is sad to see Anglo Gold Ashanti sell off its last South African assets to Harmony Gold but we are pleased that no jobs will be lost.

 

There was clear communication between organised labour, Anglo Gold Ashanti and Harmony Gold that jobs must be preserved during the transaction.

Section 197 of the Labour Relations Act will take place, which means employees will be transferred to Harmony with all their conditions of employment unchanged for at least 24 months. After that employment conditions may be amended, but only in collaboration with labour unions.

We are confident that Harmony as the biggest gold producer in South Africa will honor their obligations in the same manner as they have done with the Moab Khotsong transaction 18 months ago.

UASA commends Harmony Gold for continuing to invest in the South African economy.
