The South African Petroleum Retailers Association said all automotive industry employees should be back on the job on Monday.

This came after 14-day strike by motor industry workers including vehicle component manufacturers and petrol attendants who demanded a 15 percent wage increase and a change in working conditions.

A settlement was reached and employees will get a 10 percent increase in the first year, followed by a nine percent increase over the following two years.

Sapra’s Peter Noke said they believe that they’ve have formed a tripartite agreement between ourselves and the Department of Energy whereby we would take other social issues, discuss it, and when we reach a consensus we will discuss it further with the Minister of Energy.
