Industrial action at Northam’s Zondereinde Mine
Northam Platinum Limited confirms that employees at the Zondereinde Mine, in Limpopo, embarked on unprocedural industrial action with effect from the night shift on 13 January 2015.
Zondereinde management is seeking to engage with representatives of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) in an effort to understand the cause of the industrial action, and to expeditiously resolve the matter. Management has communicated with employees, and has sought an urgent application to the Labour Court for the action to be declared unprotected, and requiring employees to return to work.
Zondereinde’s smelter operations are unaffected.
