Platinum miner Impala Platinum (Implats, IMP) advised on Monday that about 5,000 rock drill operators at its Rustenburg operations were engaged in an illegal work stoppage that had begun on Friday.

The work stoppage is related to salary grievances.

“A court order has declared the strike illegal and the company will follow due legal process with all employees who do not report for duty on Tuesday, 24 January 2012. Further announcements will be made in due course,” the group said. - I-Net Bridge
