cosatuANA reports that labour federation Cosatu will march to Lily Mine in Barberton, Mpumalanga, on Sunday to put pressure on management to “find” three trapped mineworkers.  

Cosatu spokesman Sizwe Pamla said on Friday:  “Cosatu will stage a protest march to the Lily Mine management on 12 June to put more pressure on the company and government to fast-track the process of bringing to the surface the bodies of trapped miners and also compensate the stranded workers who are currently sitting at home.”  The march will be led by Cosatu and National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) leaders.   Cosatu also wants government to establish a commission of inquiry into the Lily Mine disaster.  Lily mine was placed into business rescue after suspending operations in February after three workers were trapped underground when the container they were working in fell into a sinkhole created by a collapsed crown pillar before being covered by huge rocks.
