  6. Mali gold miners walk-out

    Mineworkers at AngloGold Ashanti, Mali, a South African listed gold mining company, began a five day strike on Monday. The strikers at Sadiola and Yatela mines are demanding improved redundancy payments for laid off workers.

    The company stopped mining at the Yatela mine and shelved plans for expansion at the Sadiola mine last year. The company says this in response to the price of gold falling from $1920 an ounce to $1275 an ounce and increased production costs. The Secretary General of the civil, engineering and energy labour confederation, Afousenyi Toure said that 70 percent of employees at Sadiola and 90 percent at Yatela had come out by noon on Monday.

    Around 2,000 workers are employed at the two mines. The union is asking for 36 months’ salary and one million CFA francs ($2100) for medical expenses for each laid-off worker. The company is offering two months and 10 days pay for each worker.
