    They're not trapped. The shaft lift isn't working. There is another 4 km away. Inconvenienced is a better word but far less sensationalist.

    Opportunity for AMCU to flex its muscles in light of its pending deregistration.

    Perhaps, but in terms of mine safety, they will indeed be seen as trapped.

    Eish, hamba steppies

    As student i worked as onsetter, controlling the lift. Coal mine in Glencoe had an incline shaft. Mine was 400m straight down, but incline shaft obviously longer 600m. Any body leaving early without proper auth was told hamba steppies. 600m of low, wide steps eish try that one day, i would rather work full shift

    AMCU was on the news last night raving how it could have been prevented. Never told us how, but as mentioned just AMCU trying to turn it into sensation and racism in the light of the unnecessary strike.

    I once had to travel to the next station on the tube in London because of a problem in the stairway, was not trapped just inconvenienced.
