Johannesburg - South Africa's Amcu union president said on Thursday the union's 12,500 rand per month wage demand was “non-negotiable”, dashing hopes of a speedy resolution to the five-month stoppage pushing Africa's most advanced economy towards recession.

“The 12,500 rand is still non-negotiable. Amcu members are steadfast and we are not turning back on 12,500 rand,” Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) president Joseph Mathunjwa told Reuters. - Reuters
