    More strikes could be on the cards if they go ahead with it, it looks like they intend to start issuing dismissal notices on 1st Sept.

    On a related note, I found the link below which claims they cannot easily introduce mechanised processes in Plat mines to replace manual labour, I imagine this gives the unions some leverage. Unfortunately it's a paid sub to get full article.

    Looks like they are getting closer to resolving the pay dispute.

    Prices are falling.

    The current tensions between Russia and the Western World could also affect platinum's price. Palladium even more!
