Gold mines settle workers’ claims in class action

Money web - The Gauteng division of the High Court this week approved a settlement in SA’s first class action in which a group of workers and former workers in gold mines sued for damages due to unsafe, dusty working conditions that caused severe cases of silicosis and tuberculosis. Four years of negotiations between lawyers for the mineworkers and those for the gold mines resulted in a settlement worth billions of rand. The exact amount is unknown.
