The Cchamber of Mines of South Africa confirmed that fewer than 1000 members of the Solidarity union, mainly primary officials and artisans, went on strike early yesterday morning.

While participation levels differ between sites, the chamber said contingency plans had been put into place at the mines to ensure production is not interrupted.

The chamber’s negotiator for coal companies, Eric Newdo, said employers have passed on a wage package to the union which has been endorsed by the majority union National Union of Mineworkers while Solidarity, which has fewer members, launched the strike action.
