They are demanding for President Cyril Ramaphosa to come and address them.
The Sibanye-Stillwater employees affiliated to mining unions NUM and AMCU are demanding a one thousand rand salary increase backdated for 3 years.
They have vowed to camp out at the Union buildings until President Ramaphosa intervenes.
NUM’s Sizwe Mhlaba says: “We do not need an appointment with President Ramaphosa. Ramaphosa is one of us. When he wants votes it is him who comes to our houses and canvases. So, we are not going anywhere until he comes and addresses us. As you can see here we brought our blankets. We will sleep here until our demands are met.”
