The strike at Lanxess Chrome Mine in Rustenburg has been called off. Workers had staged an underground sit-in for nine days at the mine.
Over 200 mine workers have been refusing to come to the surface, until action is taken against alleged sexual harassment and victimisation.
Several miners were admitted to hospital during the strike, after refusing to eat.
Our members @Lanxess are about to be addressed by the leadership of NUMSA and .@SAFTU_media. They have been underground for nine day's protesting against sexual harassment at the mine.
