Johannesburg - Impala Platinum Holdings [JSE:IMP] said on
Thursday it had joined the country’s chamber of mines as a full member, a move
that could see it eventually bargain collectively with other companies and stem
a wave of labour unrest.
platinum sector currently negotiates with unions on a company-by-company basis,
leaving it exposed to an upstart and militant union that has recruited through
the platinum belt by promising workers at individual firms it can cut better
deals for them.
