Gold One Suspends Workers as South African Strikes Continue

Gold One International Ltd. issued suspension notices to striking employees at a mine in South Africa, where thousands of workers have walked off the job, demanding pay increases of as much as four times inflation.

A “large number” of Ezulwini workers didn’t report for work on Oct. 1 even after the Labour Court issued an order against the illegal strike, the Johannesburg-based company said today. “We are therefore without any option but to suspend these striking employees,” it said.
