Workers at Lonmin's platinum mine in Rustenburg were back at work following a wildcat strike, the company said on Friday. "Employees are back at work this morning [Friday] and discussions are ongoing," said a spokeswoman. Workers affiliated to the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) went on an unprotected strike on Tuesday, demanding that the National Union of Mineworkers' (NUM’s) offices at Lonmin be shut down. They suspended the strike after Amcu president Joseph Mathunjwa ordered them to return to work with immediate effect on Wednesday. Lonmin said 83% of workers returned to work for the night shift on Wednesday and 86% on Thursday morning. Sowetan reported on Friday that Mathunjwa, when he addressed union members on Wednesday, failed to tell them the Labour Court had declared the strike illegal.
