(MENAFN) Striking South Africans at Rustenburg mines have rejected an approach from Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) to get them back to work, Reuters reported.

Amplats has offered USD520 one-off payment and agreed to start wage talks ahead of the expiry of current agreements next year. The offer would expire if workers do not come to work, the company added.

Labour leader Evans Ramokga said that none of the workers is going back to work, as the offer doesn't meet their expectations.

"We are not happy with the conditions on the offer like the final warnings and threats of disciplinary actions for dismissed workers", he said.

The company fired 12,000 workers who went on an illegal work stoppage in Rustenburg.

The cost of the wildcat action, in its second month, is mounting and Amplats said it had lost almost 168,000 ounces in platinum production, worth over USD250 million at current spot prices.
