Johannesburg - Mining union Amcu has accepted in principle a new wage offer on the platinum belt, its leader said on Friday.

“In principle we have agreed to the offer. There are still issues that we need to consult with the employer,” Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union leader Joseph Mathunjwa told Sapa by phone.

“It's not true that we have entirely rejected the offer,” he said, in response to a radio report saying the union had rejected the latest offer.

Amcu and platinum mining companies Implats, Amplats and Lonmin were expected to meet again on Friday. - Sapa
