Johannesburg - Gold Fields [JSE:GFI], the world’s fourth-largest gold producer, said on Wednesday that 85% of its workforce had heeded a call for a one-day nationwide strike.

“Our staffing is therefore limited to essential services such as security. There is effectively no production for the first shift,” spokesperson Sven Lunsche said.

The strike, called by Cosatu, was also expected to hit other gold miners as well as the platinum and coal sectors.
