Johannesburg - Striking workers at South African bullion producer Gold Fields agreed to return to work on Wednesday, the National Union of Mineworkers said.

NUM said in a statement the 12,000 workers who downed tools at Gold Fields' KDC operation would return with Wednesday's night shift.

Sapa had earlier reported that, according to the mine, NUM president Senzeni Zokwana was overseeing talks between the union and striking branch members at Gold Fields' KDC gold mine in Westonaria on Wednesday.

“We had a series of meetings on Tuesday between the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), its members and management,” said spokesman Sven Lunsche.

“It ended up with a mass meeting where Zokwana made a commitment that he would oversee a dialogue session between the NUM branch and the disaffected NUM branch members today (Wednesday).” - Sapa and Reuters
