Rustenburg - Striking Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) members at Anglo American Platinum's (Amplats) operations in Rustenburg shouted at non-striking workers on Wednesday.
“Hey gundwana (hey rat),” they shouted when cars coming from the Khuseleka shaft one passed near them.
Some whistled and others sang, pointed at or shouted insults at the cars, travelling at high speed.
Amcu members at Khuseleka were standing at a sports field while others leaned against a huge pipe near the road leading to the shaft.
The union's members went on strike on Friday to protest against the retrenchment of 3300 workers.
Workers at various shafts were waiting for union leaders to brief them about a meeting they had held with the company. - Sapa
