Johannesburg - Striking workers at five of seven South African vehicle manufacturing plants were set to go back to work on Monday, Numsa announced on Sunday.
The strike saw production lines at major vehicle manufacturers that included Toyota, BMW and Nissan shut down and production halted during the three week strike.
However, workers at Toyota in Durban and BMW in Pretoria were unhappy with the offer, the union said.
Numsa said it was not established yet whether workers at the two plants would also return to work on Monday as negotiations with them were still continuing.
Workers at Toyota had secured a R3.25 adjustment last year, and now wanted more, said Jim.
At BMW, the employees, who had already embarked on a strike before the rest of the industry joined in, demanded that their shift allowance be increased.
“Numsa office bearers are working with our members at Toyota and BMW to accept the offer,” said Jim.
The deal included an 11.5 percent increase for 2013, 10 percent for 2014 and 2015, a R1200 transport allowance per annum, a 70 percent medical allowance and a R750 housing allowance. -Sapa
