PRESS RELEASE: UDM calls on Companies
The United Democratic Movement (UDM) notes the rejection of wage offer by NUM and other Unions, and their continued strike which in itself offers no solutions.
By striking there is no winner. Instead there is a loss of production and loss of incomes, with the resultant national economy taking a nose dive.
The UDM notes with alarm that although Unions present their increase proposals to their respective companies well in advance, it seems as if the companies do not take the proposals seriously until the workers go on strike.
We call upon companies to illustrate good faith and leadership within their organisations by engaging in meaningful wage negotiations, and doing so timeously, thus avoiding the annual strike season.
