AMCU says de-registration halted

South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) said on Monday its threatened de-registration for not complying with labour laws had been halted and that it was in the process of meeting government requirements. In April, the government's labour registrar said he intended to cancel registration of AMCU, one of the nation's largest and most militant unions, because it was "not a genuine trade union" as envisaged in the Labour Relations Act.
