FronemanBusiness Report writes that Sibanye Gold boss Neal Froneman has thrown down the gauntlet at unions, charging that the industry would no longer tolerate strikes as a means to push it into making compromises during negotiations.  

Addressing the 2016 Junior Indaba on Wednesday, he took a hard line against organised labour when he said Sibanye would not be bullied into meeting what he called unsustainable demands.  His comments came in the wake of a brief wildcat strike led by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) at the Kroondal platinum mine in Rustenburg over a demand for transport to be provided.  Sibanye spokesman James Wellsted said disciplinary action was under way, but the company had not yet suspended any employees for the strike.
