NUM terminates closed-shop agreement at Gold One Mine

# The National Union of Mineworkers says it has decided to terminate the closed-shop agreement at Gold One Modder East Mine in Springs, Gauteng. Work stopped last week after the mine found workers were planning another sit-in underground, the same as what happened three weeks ago. Workers are refusing to be represented by NUM, which enjoys the majority representation, instead wants the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union. NUM says it has taken a responsible decision to safeguard the jobs and save the lives of innocent workers.
