The agreement will be signed between AngloGold, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the ICEM at the AngloGold head office in Johannesburg.
It is the first global agreement in the mining industry and the first in the developing world.
The agreement commits Anglogold and the ICEM to engage in partnerships that will ensure harmonious and good work relationships throughout the world, as well as enabling and increasing the potential for solidarity among workers in all of Anglogold’s operations.
This agreement is to improve negative image the industry has acquired, that is, of being an industry of death and corrosion of communities and their environment.
