Northam Platinum confirms strike from contractor-employed miners at Booysendal

Northam Platinum Ltd. confirmed that about 750 contractor employees at its Booysendal platinum mine in South Africa started an unprotected strike the night of March 26.

In a move to make Booysendal an owner-operated mine, Northam approached the employees of contractor Murray & Roberts Cementation Ltd., or MRC, to become full-time Northam employees. The employees are demanding end-of-contract termination packages from MRC.

According to a March 27 statement, MRC and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union are in consultation with the affected employees, while MRC has applied for an urgent interdict to effect a return to work.
