JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's AMCU union president said on Thursday the union's 12,500 rand (696.2 pounds) per month wage demand was "non-negotiable", dashing hopes of a speedy resolution to the five-month stoppage pushing Africa's most advanced economy towards recession.
"The 12,500 rand is still non-negotiable. AMCU members are steadfast and we are not turning back on 12,500 rand," Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) president Joseph Mathunjwa told Reuters.
