Workers at Areva plant in Niger start 48-hr strike

NIAMEY, April 18 (Reuters) - Workers at Areva’s Cominak uranium mine in northern Niger started a 48-hour strike on Thursday to demand the payment of a bonus on the mine’s 2012 financial results, union leaders told Reuters.

“Work stopped on Thursday awaiting the resolution of our demands, principally the payment of a bonus of 600,000 CFA francs per worker on the 2012 financial results,” said Inoua Neino, general-secretary of the National Union of Mine Workers of Niger (Syntramin).
