Miners stage sit-in at Rustenburg mine

NUM Rustenburg Regional Chairperson, July Radibe speaks to Phemelo about over 2 hundred mine
workers at Bakubung Platinum Mine in Ledig, in the North West that have staged a sit in
underground. The workers did not surface after their shift this morning. Workers are disgruntled
over unresolved complaints they have been voicing for months. Among them is the mine’s alleged
intention to retrench more than 500 workers, allegations of terminated contracts of pregnant
female mineworkers, as well as the mine’s refusal to adhere to the CCMA’s recommendations on the
July unprotected strike.
