Mining unions prepare for ‘massive strike’ at Sibanye’s gold operations

Trade unions the National Union of Mineworkers, Uasa, Solidarity and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) have rejected precious metals miner Sibanye-Stillwater’s latest wage offer for employees of its gold operations, insisting instead on their joint proposals and threatening the miner with a “massive strike” in early March.

AMCU general secretary Jeff Mphahlele announced during a media briefing on February 24 that the unions would embark on balloting their members at Sibanye’s gold operation on March 1.
