Johannesburg – The mining sector should be shut down and there should be a solidarity revolution in the sector, said Joseph Mathunjwa, president of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU).

Issues he raised included pressures the sector is facing, particularly commodity price fluctuations which are exacerbating existing issues such as the charter regulations.
