Amplats threatens strikers with legal action

2012-09-24 14:26

The world’s largest platinum producer, Anglo Platinum (Amplats) has threatened to take legal action against striking workers that refused to return to work, according to a report.

Amplats’ Mpumi Mnisi said that mine management was disappointed by the situation by the poor turnout of miners showing up for work, EWN reported.

“Anglo American Platinum continues to be disappointed with the low turnout. We encourage our workers to return to work and we require them to do so by no later than the night shift on Monday,” Mnisi is quoted as saying.

Earlier Amplats workers braved the cold to meet at the Sondela sports grounds to discuss their plans ahead of another round of wage talks with mine management tomorrow.

Amplats workers went on strike two weeks ago demanding a salary increase of R17 000, but have backtracked to R12 500.
