The National Union of Mineworkers says they have served gold mining companies with notice of a strike, starting from tomorrow.

The union’s Lesiba Seshoka says some 250-thousand miners will down tools if their demands for a 14-percent wage increase are not met.

About 150-thousand miners in the coal sector already went on strike on Sunday evening, prompting fears that power utility Eskom may not be able to keep the lights on this winter.
