JOHANNESBURG (miningweekly.com) – JSE-listed Aquarius Platinum on Wednesday said that production at its Everest mine had resumed, following industrial action.
Members of the Association of Mining and Construction Unions (AMCU) employed by contractor Murray & Roberts Cementation (MRC) downed tools earlier this week, demanding full organisational rights from MRC in terms of the Labour Relations Act.
Aquarius Platinum said that an interim agreement between itself, the union and MRC ended the protected strike on Wednesday.
“Production had resumed this morning,” it said in a statement.
The miner would continue to mediate in the discussions between the AMCU and MRC in order to reach a lasting solution to the dispute between them.
