JOHANNESBURG  – South Africa’s National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said today it would fight plans by Dilokong Chrome Mine to cut up to 700 jobs, appealing to the mines minister to intervene.

The NUM said in a statement it had been served with a notice for the layoffs, adding that the un-listed mine planned to retain a few employees to carry out maintenance.

“The NUM requests Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane to intervene immediately to stop this drastic action,” the union said.
