Johannesburg - Trade union Solidarity on Friday urged striking Lonmin workers to return to work on Monday, when wage talks were set to resume.

"Solidarity now appeals to the striking workers to comply with the requirements for the negotiations, namely to lay down their arms and to return to work by Monday, so that their demand could be addressed," general secretary Gideon du Plessis said in a statement.

Facilitators from the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration had confirmed that talks about a R12 500 salary demand would continue at noon on Monday, he said.

"All parties involved, including Amcu [Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union] and representatives of the striking workers, have been invited to the negotiations.

"Solidarity... appealed to Amcu and representatives of the striking workers to use the opportunity to show the world that they can function in a peaceful manner and within a legal framework," Du Plessis said.
