Johannesburg – Strikes that threaten national interest or are at risk of being drawn out longer with economic consequences, can now be nipped by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

This is according to a statement on the progress made on the Farlam Commission’s recommendations by various government departments. President Jacob Zuma highlighted the additional powers granted to the CCMA to intervene on strike action.

Previously News24 reported that government had been working on implementing the recommendations. The president appointed the commission to investigate the incident at Lonmin Mine in Marikana which led to the deaths of 34 miners four years ago.
