The Department Of labour has come out to say it intends to deregister one of the country’s biggest mining unions, just weeks before crucial platinum-industry wage talks are expected to begin.

The Union will hold a press briefing tomorrow to respond. Brett Abraham, Partner, Webber Wentzel joins CNBC Africa to give insight.
