Johannesburg - The world's largest platinum producer, Anglo Platinum [JSE:AMS] on Monday threatened to take legal action against striking workers that refused to return to work, EWN reports.

Amplats' Mpumi Sithole said in the report that mine management was disappointed by the situation by the poor turnout of miners showing up for work.

“Anglo American Platinum continues to be disappointed with the low turnout. We encourage our workers to return to work and we require them to do so by no later than the night shift on Monday,” Sithole is quoted as saying.

Earlier Amplats workers braved the cold to meet at the Sondela sports grounds to discuss their plans ahead of another round of wage talks with mine management on Tuesday.

Amplats workers went on strike two weeks ago demanding a monthly salary of R17 000, but have backtracked to R12 500.
