harmonyEWN reports that according to Harmony Gold it has reached an agreement with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) to end the strike at its Kusasalethu mine in Carletonville.  

But it will wait to see if employees hold to their end of the deal and return to work.  Employees embarked on a wildcat strike following the dismissal of six Amcu branch officials.  Harmony Gold approached the Labour Court for an urgent interdict on Monday morning.  Harmony’s Fourie indicated: “Subsequent to the granting of an interdict, there was a mass meeting held by Amcu leadership with employees at the mine and they have confirmed that they will call off the strike.  They also confirmed that employees will start returning to work.”
