Atlatsa sacks over 1,000 strikers in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Atlatsa Resources on Tuesday said it had dismissed over 1,000 employees at its Bokoni platinum mine in South Africa after they failed to report for work following a wildcat strike.

“Only 643 of the 2,161 employees returned to work yesterday,” it said in a statement.

It had sacked the 2,161 workers earlier this month but later gave them a chance to return to their jobs by Monday.
