Strikes loom at South African gold miners

|By:, SA News Editor

South African gold miners including AngloGold Ashanti (AU), Harmony Gold (HMY) and Sibanye Gold (SBGL) face strike notices over pay demands, the AMCU union says.

The gold companies in September reached a wage accord with labor groups except AMCU, the dominant union at the largest mines in the country.

AMCU says members will strike at Impala Platinum (IMPUY), the world’s second-biggest producer, and meetings will be held at Lonmin (LNMIF) and Anglo American Platinum (AGPPY).
