South Africa's AMCU declares a dispute in wage talks with platinum firms

JOHANNESBURG, Sept 10 (Reuters) - South Africa's AMCU union General Secretary Jeff Mphalele said on Tuesday the union had declared a wage dispute with Anglo American Platinum AMSJ.J and Sibanye-Stillwater SGLJ.J raising concerns of a possible strike in the local platinum industry.

The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU), the majority union in the platinum sector, initially demanded a monthly basic wage hike of about 48% and said it was disappointed by a wage offer for workers at Lonmin, which was acquired by Sibanye this year.
