AMCU union rejects wage hike gold producers


Members of South Africa’s Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) rejected on Sunday a wage offer from gold producers of increases of up to 17 per cent, spokesman Manzini Zungu told Reuters.

Gold firms Sibanye Gold and AngloGold Ashanti last week offered an additional 1,000 rand ($80) a month to entry-level workers while Harmony Gold offered 500 rand a month.
