More mining strikes in S Africa


One week after the resolution of the six-week strike amongst Lonmin workers in South Africa, that led to the deaths of 46 people, workers at other mines are walking out in disputes over pay and conditions.

Charles Gibson, Sector Head of Mining at Edison Investment Research, told Simon Jack that other employers are now "going to be asked" to raise pay by 22%, in line with the pay raise made by Lonmin.

Mr Gibson described the mining strikes as "a microcosm" of South Africa's society amind election campaigning.
