Union Urges Dialogue at Purity Manganese Mine.

The National Union of Namibian Workers (NUNW) this week appealed strongly on the management of the Purity Manganese mine to immediately restore direct dialogue with the Mineworkers Union (MUN) of Namibia.

The union called on the management of Purity Manganese not to go ahead with its intention to terminate the Recognition and Procedural Agreement with the MUN.

"We believe that this action is counterproductive, and would reverse the gains we have made thus far in mending this very important bipartite relationship," the union said.

The union said it appreciates the willingness of the management of Purity Manganese to readily meet and dialogue with the NUNW on the situation at the mine as well as future relationship-building strategies.

Workers at Purity Manganese staged a half-day industrial action at that mine in July this year.

The industrial action allegedly occurred following a dispute between that company's general manager Yuri Presman and an employee.
