2012-10-18 14:51

Johannesburg - Samancor management and worker representatives were meeting on Thursday to resolve the strike, the company said.

"We expect that a resolution will be reached and we will inform the media via a statement to be released after 3pm," the company said.

The workers are demanding a monthly salary of R12 500.

On Tuesday, Samancor said it had extended leave days granted to workers last week.

It said workers had been on annual leave from October 3 until October 16 and would be required to return to work on October 22.

"This will enable the company and stakeholders to continue with the engagement process prior to the return to work."
