BCL wages deadlock finally resolved


SELEBI-PHIKWE: BCL Mine and Botswana Mine Workers Union have reached an agreement on the marathon wage negotiations that had reached a five-month long deadlock.

A statement from the mine’s general manager Daniel Mahupela noted that the wage dispute was settled on Monday this week.  Both parties agreed on a six percent salary increase across the board on basic salaries for the employees on the job grades P1 to AO3 effective April 2014.

The 2014/2015 wage negotiations between the mine and the union had broken down after BMWU had rejected the Mine’s six percent offer, and instead demanded a 12 percent increase across the board.
