It seems to us that Lanxess management want our members to be brought up in bodybags. They do not want an amicable solution to this strike.

Our members ate only on Monday. Since the sit-in began on Wednesday they have been without food. On Friday Lanxess cut off the electricity underground which deprived them of water and ventilation. It was only because of intervention from the union that power was restored

The management of Lanxess is cruel. They refuse to allow workers to access food. NUMSA officials had to fight, and it was only with the intervention of the dept of Mineral resources on Sunday night that the management finally agreed to allow food to be given to our members.

Why does Lanxess continue to refuse food for workers who are protesting underground against sexual harassment and other issues? This food has been sitting in the truck for more than SIX HOURS . . . .

Good day Mr. Matthias do you condone sexual harassment? Unfortunately it seems Lanxess SA does because they are victimizing a worker for exposing this kind of abuse. . . . . . .

Lanxess in SA can no longer justify protecting an alleged sexual predator. They have a duty to discipline the mine captain and the HR manager for the role they have played in the suffering of a female worker. . . . .

Lanxess in South Africa is a company which has a history of brutalizing workers. It does not respect the rights of workers to choose the union of their choice. . . . . .

Good day Mr Zachert. Did you know that Lanxess in SA is hostile to workers? Our members are on strike because the management does not care about sexual harassment. . . . . . .

Ramaxosha's will not help those who work + 20 days& only have a cr balance for 3 hours on their paydays. We asked for eggs (tax relief) and we got scorpions. Govt&SOE workers will only stop living hand to mouth they have INDEPENDENT UNIONS.
