JOHANNESBURG – Unions and management at Lonmin’s Marikana Mine, appeared to have reached an agreement in peace talks on Wednesday night.

It followed a march by Marikana miners, who threatened to burn down a shaft at the Karee Mine, unless their demands were met.

They also urged non-striking employees to abandon their posts and join the industrial action.

Mining bosses remained in talks with labour officials and unions on Wednesday night, in an attempt to resolve a wage dispute.

COSATU’s S’dumo Dlamini said, “We reached an agreement on the peace accord, to normalise the situation, to pave the way for the negotiations of the demand for R12,500 for the workers. We think it’s a very, very, important step forward, which would allow workers to go back to work”.
