The South African Catering and Commercial Allied Workers’ Union and Pick n’ Pay will sign the "Wage Agreement" after the two parties reached an agreement.
They will sign a three-year deal which will see a wage increase of 365-Rands in the first 18-months, and a 400-Rands increase for the following 18-months.
SACCAWU initially asked for a 500-Rands or 12-percent increase.
SACCAWU and Pick n Pay said: "We are pleased that we have reached an agreement and believe that this is in the interests of both employees at Pick n Pay and the long-term sustainability of the company.
Meanwhile, about 27 000 Pick n’ Pay employees have returned to work on Thursday and Friday following a two-week strike.
