panafricanReuters reports that workers at Pan African Resource’s (PAR’s) flagship gold mine embarked on a wildcat strike on Sunday in a dispute over the living (living-out?) allowance, an industry source indicated on Thursday.  

About 1,800 workers at Barberton mine downed tools in the strike, which was also called to protest the dismissal of two of its union leaders, the source said.  The firm’s management was meeting with union leaders to resolve the two issues, the source said, adding that it was unclear when the strike would end.
