Metrorail says a limited rail service is available for commuters this morning.
This follows one of the transport unions, Utatu’s acceptance of the Passenger Rail Agency’s 10-percent wage hike offer.
Members of another union, Satawu are meanwhile holding out for a higher increase.
Utatu has also accepted Transnet’s 11-percent increase for workers at ports, goods trains and other services. But this strike will continue as Satawu has decided to stick to its demand for a 13-percent increase.
