Striking Kusasalethu employees return to work

The employees reported to work on Monday night (13 November) for the night shift and day shift on Tuesday morning (14 November).

“For Kusasalethu to be profitable, discipline has to be restored and focus needs to remain on safety and productivity. We call on all unions’ leadership and employees to accept this shared responsibility,” says Harmony Gold CEO Peter Steenkamp

The unprotected strike by employees started on Friday 10 November 2017, in response to the dismissal of six employees, all members of AMCU’s branch leadership at the mine.

Their dismissal follows an extensive and lengthy disciplinary process followed by management and remains intact
