'Amplats wage negations not over'
Amplats strike leaders say wage negotiations between workers and management are ongoing.
RUSTENBURG - Strike leaders in Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) in Rustenburg on Sunday said they would continue to negotiate with management for a R16,000 minimum wage for miners while their strike remained on hold.
A rally was held in Rustenburg on Saturday to officially end the strike and brief miners about the ongoing negotiations.
The miners returned to work earlier this week after a two-month long industrial action.
But the wage negotiations are still ongoing.
The miners downed tools in September to demand a R16,000 basic salary from Amplats.
But strike leader from the Democratic Socialist Movement Mametlwe Sebei said management offered the workers a R400 increase.
Sebei said the strike would only be over once their demands were met.
"The argument and the settlement that was entered into was a token by management for continued wage adjustments."
