Amcu retracts strike notices after legal advice
Over the past weekend, the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) took a decision to withdraw a notice of secondary strike action at several mines after it was advised by its lawyers to retract strike notices.
Contributor at Mining MX Ed Stoddard says he assumes that Amcu lawyers may have advised the union that a secondary strike could be legally vulnerable and if it was to go ahead, it will probably be declared unprotected by the courts.
Amcu is known for drama and high drama at that and essentially their lawyers could've advised them to be sensible about this.Ed Stoddard, Contributor - Mining MX
Amcu was planning to up the pressure on Sibanye-Stillwater through a seven-day campaign of secondary strikes.
But considering the state in which the mining industry in the country finds itself in where hundreds of jobs are being shed, Stoddard says it is probably a good thing that Amcu has heeded advice from its legal council.
