Striking workers at the Anglo American Platinum mine in South Africa continue to defy Tuesday’s deadline to return to work.
Around 2,000 of them protested in Rustenburg, north west of Johannesburg, on Wednesday.
The company, known as Amplats, had worked out a deal with various unions on Saturday, including the main two – the National Union of Mineworkers and Solidarity.
Those negotiations led to an offer to reinstate 12,000 miners who were sacked in early October.
However, Amplat workers still have grievances with the company and the unions, according to the committee representing the striking miners.
Ignoring the order to be back at work on Tuesday morning, workers instead spent the day protesting. Police used rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannon to disperse the crowd and 13 people were arrested.
Pay, conditions and inadequate representation from unions have been the complaints from striking miners across South Africa, who work for other major companies including Gold Fields and platinum-producer Lonmin.
