The companies confirmed that the Labour Court continued to broker mediation between themselves and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu).

“The producers reaffirm their commitment to finding a common commitment to endeavour to resolve this dispute.”

Members of Amcu at the companies went on strike on January 23 demanding a basic salary of R12 500 per month. They rejected the companies' offer that would bring their cash remuneration to R12 500 by July 2017. - Sapa
