Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (Num) said on Wednesday it has served a strike notice to Modikwa Platinum, a joint venture between African Rainbow Minerals and Anglo Platinum, over a wage dispute.

The Num said in a statement it was demanding a 12% increase while the company was offering hikes of 8.5% to 9.5%, depending on worker category.

Modikwa produced 130 000 ounces of refined platinum in 2010.
