Font size: -+

The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) noted with great shock the misguided judgment handed down at the Labour Court this morning. The judgment found in favour of the interdict applications of major mining houses who belong to the Minerals Council of South Africa, against AMCU’s secondary strike action in support of the strike at Sibanye-Stillwater’s gold operations.

From an initial analysis of the judgment, it becomes evident that the Court did not truly consider the compelling arguments made by AMCU regarding the purpose of a secondary strike. Secondary strikes are an integral part of the constitutional right to strike, and this seems to have been neglected in the judgment.

AMCU views this judgment as a serious infringement on the right of workers to engage in secondary strike action. It creates a perilous precedent which will hold serious prejudice to the working class. For this reason, AMCU has given instructions to its lawyers to apply for urgent leave to appeal the judgment.
