    South Africa: Crippling Strikes to Hemorrhage Mining and Construction Sectors

    The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Thursday warned that its members “have already shown a great interest in the matter by voting in favour of a strike in many gold mines”.
    The union said it had notified employers in the construction industry of its intention to begin industrial action on Monday.
    “The arrogance of, the mining and construction companies have pushed us too far,” said Frans Baleni, the NUM general secretary.
    The NUM represents about 64 percent of about 140 000 miners in the South African gold industry, where major operators include AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, Harmony and Sibanye Gold.
