Impact of the illegal strike at the LANXESS Chrome Mine in Rustenburg 

20 March 2020

  • The percentage of miners striking is 5% of the overall workforce. As a result, the legal strike has impacted 95% of workers. 
  • Since the illegal strike by NUMSA workers, the LANXESS Chrome Mine has shut down making it difficult for approximately 1,400 miners to resume work and continue to fulfil their livelihoods.
  • If each miner is a bread winner and is looking after a household of 5 people, this potentially has an impact on 7,000 mouths to be fed.
  •   The mining sector contributes about 20% to the South African GDP. Strikes such as this damages investor confidence and in doing so, has negative impacts on the economy and job sustainability/creation for those working in this sector.
