Sibanye proceeds with lockout of workers at its gold mines

Precious and battery metals producer Sibanye-Stillwater on Thursday evening confirmed that it was proceeding with the lockout of workers at its South African gold operations, with effect from 22:00 on March 10. This follows after the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) served Sibanye with a strike notice earlier this week. The unions and Sibanye have been in negotiations and mediation over wage increases for months.
