Gold Fields strike continues

 

Johannesburg - The strike at Gold Fields' KDC gold mine was continuing on Tuesday, the mine said.

"The strike is unfortunately continuing. We have set up a series of meetings with the (National Union of Mineworkers) Num, with the disaffected Num members, at the mine to try and resolve the issue," said spokesperson Sven Lunsche.

"This follows interactions with the Num national office and the department of mineral resources yesterday."

He said based on those meeting, a series of meetings had been structured to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

On Monday, expelled ANC Youth League president Julius Malema told the striking miners that workers should lead themselves when labour unions neglected them.

"Leaders of the Num should know that you can't act for workers without consulting them, and don't take workers for granted."

Malema said: "If they fail you, you must lead yourself."

Malema spoke to loud cheers from the miners, who have been on strike since Wednesday. They want the Num's local leadership to resign.

He told his audience to continue fighting for better wages.

The ANC in the OR Tambo region, in the Eastern Cape, had declared that the minimum monthly wage for mine workers across the country should be R12 500, he said.

Workers wielded sticks and sang songs when Malema arrived in a black Mercedes-Benz.
