After months of recruiting at the diamond mining company KEMJV in Kimberley, UASA reached our target of 33% to regain our organisational rights, which were taken away when our membership at the mine fell below the threshold figure.
The team, consisting of Colette, Nico and Carike, managed to recruit 75 people in 4 months which pushed our membership well over the 33% threshold for organisational rights. We are currently on 36%.
This means members now can get representation on all the mine forums, as well as a leave day for union activities.
The team now only needs 60 members to achieve bargaining rights in the C Lower and C Upper bargaining unit, for which 50% plus 1 is needed.
UASA is pleased with our recruiters’ hard work and dedication and wish them success in their future endeavours
