South African court blocks mine union AMCU plans for industry-wide strike
RUSTENBURG, March 15 (Reuters) - South Africa's labour court
has rejected a request by platinum and gold sector union the
Association of Mineworkers and Construction (AMCU) to hold an
industry-wide strike, a spokesman for mining firm Anglogold
Ashanti said on Friday.
AMCU has been on strike at Sibanye-Stillwater's gold
operations since mid-November in a pay dispute and wanted to
extend the strike to at least 15 other mining firms including
AngloGold, Harmony Gold, and Lonmin.
