Mine workers in 3-day underground strike

Mine workers in 3-day underground strike
Published: 22 July 2013
About 114 disgruntled workers at Lynx Mine in Karoi last week staged a 3-day underground strike as they demanded the axing of senior managers they accused of being insensitive to their plight.

The strike, which has resulted in the mine's human resources manager, Joseph Chitendara, and captain David Sigauke being suspended, saw the disgruntled workers refusing to come out of the mine shaft until wholesale changes were made.

The workers, whose spouses religiously brought food and water, accused the company's management of arbitrarily reducing their salaries, offering poor accommodation and refusing them access to medical attention.
