Harmony Gold Mining Company Ltd:South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) voted on Sunday to strike at the operations of AngloGold Ashanti, Harmony Gold and Sibanye Gold - Reuters."The whole gold sector has voted for a strike," AMCU President Joseph Mathunjwa said after a crowd of about 5,000 miners voted by a show of hands - Reuters.AMCU, which lead a bruising five-month strike last year in the platinum sector, is known for its uncompromising stance, and has not backed down from its original demand for a more than doubling of basic wages to 12,500 rand a month - Reuters.The vote will not lead to an immediate stoppage - Reuters.Only at Sibanye does the AMCU have a clear path to a strike that would not be deemed wildcat - Reuters.The Chamber of Mines has said Harmony and AngloGold will go to court to prevent AMCU from striking because they have signed wage deals with three other unions representing most of their workers - Reuters.The industry says this means they can apply the same agreement to the rest of their workforce. This happened two years ago in the gold sector, when AMCU was forced to accept agreements signed by other unions - Reuters.  Full Article
