Anglo American has asked the court to block a planned strike by the miners and Construction Union, one of the country's largest mining unions, saying the strike will further undermine the development of the industry, according to SMM.
Anglo American, the world's top platinum supplier, and other producers want miners and construction unions to block the strike, which began on February 28.
The strike over pay has been going on since November, followed by a gradual deterioration in labour relations.
Anglo American said the miners and construction alliance's actions did not well protect the interests of workers or the industry. At the same time, the court is expected to block the strike on Wednesday.
The industry-wide strike is the longest in the platinum industry since 2014. At the same time, mining companies are preparing for a new round of talks with the miners and construction alliance on pay.
As the prices of palladium and platinum soar, more strikes follow.
