Parties involved in the platinum mining sector wage dispute should spare no effort to find a win-win solution because a protracted strike is not in anyone’s interest, North West Premier Thandi Modise said on Thursday.
“Engaging in court cases and marches away from the negotiation table is counterproductive as it does not advance the parties towards finding an amicable solutions to end the six-weeks long strike,” Premier Modise said.
Modise expressed concern regarding acts of violence and intimidation of non-striking workers.
“Regaining trust and mutual respect is critical to end the strike which is beginning to impact negatively on the local economy and putting a strain on relations between strikers and our communities,” she said.
