Endiama concludes social security payments to workers in still mines

The National Diamond Company of Angola (Endiama) on Friday announced that it had concluded payment of social security contributions to workers at five paralysed mines, totalling around four million dollars (2.1 million kwanzas).


The company had previously made five other payments since 29 November 2018 to the workers of Sociedade Mineira do Lucapa, Luarica, Fucaúma, Luxinge and Yetwene.

This is the second process, after Endiama concluded in December 2019 the payment of contributions for the Cuango workers, amounting to approximately 4.4 billion kwanzas.

This week, half a hundred workers from former Endiama mining projects took advantage of the company's 39th anniversary celebrations to protest in front of its headquarters in Luanda, demanding the payment of compensation that the diamond company considers it has already settled.

At issue, for the former miners, is the payment of wages, pensions and compensation.

In a statement, Endiama acknowledges the dispute, stating that in the case of the paralyzed companies, "the workers were complaining about payments for allegedly salaries in arrears, but Endiama has another understanding.

In a meeting between the parties, on 19 December 2019, it was decided to use the mediation of the General Labour Inspection.

In the Cuango case, the workers ask that those who are not yet 60 years old be included in early retirement
