South African coal miners begin strike

South Africa’s largest coal sector union will reopen negotiations with the producers after around 30,000 workers went on strike over wage increases on Sunday, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said on Wednesday.

South African coal miners went on a strike after wage talks with the Chamber of Mines collapsed last week, disrupting the sector that produces the country’s electricity and exports coal to Europe and Asia.
