The standoff between Sibanye Stillwater and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) appears nowhere near to being resolved.
An estimated 12 000 mine workers will go on a secondary strike at Sibanye Stilwater’s platinum operations in Rustenburg next week.
Sibanye-Stillwater has contingency plans in place to minimize the possible impact of a strike at its South African platinum operations, Chief Executive Neal Froneman said.
The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) has unveiled plans to embark on a secondary strike at Sibanye Stillwater’s platinum operations around Rustenburg.
Sibanye-Stillwater said on Thursday its bullion output in 2018 would be lower than forecast after almost half of the employees down tools since mid-November in a wage strike that has killed four employees at its South African gold operations.
