South Africa’s Amcu union said on Tuesday it has referred ongoing platinum wage negotiations with Anglo American Platinum and Sibanye-Stillwater to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration.

Amcu President Joseph Mathunjwa said at a briefing on Tuesday that the union, the majority union in the platinum sector, would not accept less than a R1 000 ($65.68) increase to monthly wages.

He said negotiations with Impala Platinum were not referred to the CCMA, a government body charged with dispute resolution.

Mathunjwa also criticised Sibanye-Stillwater’s decision to cut more than 5 000 jobs last month, saying Amcu would campaign for South Africa’s Labour Relations Act to be amended to make it more difficult for companies to retrench workers.
