SAMANCOR WAGE INCREASE DUE 1 JULY 2020

MEMORANDUM

TO: ALL MEMBERS OF UASA-THE UNION: SAMANCOR
FROM: FRANZ STEHRING
DIVISIONAL MANAGER: MINERALS
DATE: 22 JUNE 2020
SUBJECT: WAGE INCREASE DUE 1 JULY 2020
SAMANCOR


Samancor and unions signed a 3 year agreement and 2020 is the third year of the agreement. It was agreed that if the mine was not achieving its targets, a 7% increase will be applicable to its employees.


Unions were notified that due to financial constraints, market demands, cost applications and the consequences of COVID - 19, the company is not in a position to comply with the wage agreement. Instead the company propose the following:


1. That all overtime will be paid from July 2020 and not laid off.
2. In September 2020 the financial position of the Company will be revisited and the 7% increase will be considered.
3. If not possible to comply with the increase, the Company will give an increase of 8% in January 2021.


A follow-up meeting will be conducted on 25 June 2020 between UASA the Union and management.
The company will have to close more shafts and operations and more employees will be at risk of losing their jobs if the proposal above is rejected.


Yours faithfully


FRANZ STEHRING
