Minister hails Impala, NUM accord

An agreement that is said to end a two-year impasse between platinum mining company Impala and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has been hailed by new Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane. A statement issued by the Department of Mineral Resources to Creamer Media’s Mining Weekly Online on Friday stated that the memorandum of understanding reached would result in workers – who had been asked to leave Impala’s employ over safety concerns during strikes in 2012 –  returning to work.
