JOHANNESBURG - Harmony Gold employees at its Kusasalethu mine have returned to work after a two-day strike prompted by the sacking of six union leaders, the company said on Tuesday.

“The employees reported to work last night for the night shift and day shift this morning,” Harmony Gold said in a statement.

The company on Monday issued an ultimatum to employees calling them to return to work.

Harmony Gold indicated it could approach the Labour Court for an urgent interdict to halt the illegal work stoppage.
