South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) said on Tuesday it would serve Sibanye Gold with a notice to strike because the bullion producer did not sign a separate wage agreement with the worker's group. Sibanye signed a wage deal with three other unions and extended it to AMCU. "We will serve them with the strike notice as soon as we consult with the worker structures on the ground," AMCU national treasurer Jimmy Gama told Reuters.
