AMCU (Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union) members march in Johannesburg on March 27, 2014 during a demonstration where its President delivered a memorandum to the main Platinum producers. In the first high-level government talks since the beginning of a nine-week crippling platinum strike, South African mining stakeholders Thursday discussed inter-union violence, but avoided a devastating platinum strike battering the beleaguered economy. "The strike was not discussed," said Minister of Mineral Resources Susan Shabangu after talks led by Vice President Kgalema Motlanthe.
