The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has called for a meeting with major banks to discuss the closure of various Gupta accounts amid fears of job losses.
The Pretoria High Court's rejection of a bid by nearly two dozen Gupta-owned companies to keep their Bank of Baroda accounts open could lead to more than 7 000 employees losing their jobs.
NUM President Thamsanqa Matosa says the union plans to hold a press conference on Tuesday to discuss the issue.
The National Executive Committee of the NUM that took place on Thursday and Friday last week resolved on a number of things. In a briefing tomorrow, we will be communicating decisions taken by the committee.— Thamsanqa Matosa, NUM President
Those decisions include meeting and approaching a number of institutions and individuals.— Thamsanqa Matosa, NUM President
