cosatuBusiness Report writes that Cosatu says urgent action needs to be taken to put an end to the violence that continues to haunt the mining industry.  

The federation’s call follows clashes between members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), which have left two miners dead.  Cosatu spokesperson Sizwe Pamla said on Friday the federation welcomed a commitment by Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane for an urgent probe into the killings at Northam platinum mine in Limpopo.  However, Pamla said Cosatu was concerned at the slow pace of arrests.  Cosatu also said the language used by leaders should be cautious to ensure it did not incite violence.
