Unprotected work stoppage at Zondereinde – update 2

Following the court interdict served on Northam Platinum’s striking Zondereinde employees yesterday, over 40% of the shift complement (of some 4,600 people) reported for the morning shift at the mine today.

Management has provided those remaining striking employees with a final opportunity to return to work by 16 January 2015 failing which disciplinary measures will be instituted as provided for in the Labour Court’s interdict declaring the strike to be unprotected. This disciplinary process may include dismissal.
