Cape Town - Trade union Solidarity said it would not allow its members who are employees at the Barbrook gold mine in Mpumalanga - which was placed under business rescue in December - to suffer the same fate as workers at their sister company Lily Mine. 

According to Solidarity workers at Lily Mine, which was closed following a mining accident in February last year and subsequently placed under business rescue, are still waiting for their severance packages. Their salaries are also still outstanding. 

When Lily Mine closed, 130 of its workers moved over to Barbrook while the remainder opted for retrenchment packages.
