Gold Fields faces South Deep strike

[] — GOLD Fields said on Monday the National Union of Mineworkers (Num) members at its South Deep mine will strike on Tuesday following a fight over employee-management relations.

“The dispute concerns failure to reach full agreement over Num demands to participate in certain decision making processes that Gold Fields views primarily as management prerogative,” the company said in a statement.

The company said it would seek an interdict against the strike and had made necessary arrangement to mitigate its impact if it fails to obtain the interdict.
