Johannesburg - The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) wants to expand the platinum sector strike.

“We have filed an application with Nedlac (National Economic Development and Labour Council) in Rosebank,” Amcu president Joseph Mathunjwa said on Thursday.

“We want our workers in the gold and coal sectors to join us,” he told hundreds of Amcu members gathered outside Impala Platinum's head office in Illovo, Johannesburg.

The workers had marched from a park in Dunkeld West to deliver a memorandum to Implats.

Amcu-affiliated mineworkers in the platinum sector have been on strike for over two months. - Sapa
