South African platinum workers eye windfall as wage talks near

Negotiations for a three-year wage deal with producers including Anglo American Platinum., Sibanye-Stillwater and Impala Platinum Holdings are expected to start in the first week of April, said Jimmy Gama, chief negotiator and treasurer at the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union. He declined to disclose the union’s demands.
