Johannesburg - The leadership of the National Union of Mine Workers (NUM) signed a memorandum of understanding with striking workers at KDC East mine, Gold Fields said on Friday evening.
Spokesman Billy Jacobs said the memorandum meant that the strike was at an end and workers would resume their duties on Tuesday.
NUM president Senzeni Zokwana said: “It does not necessarily mean that the strike is over, it is just an understanding”.
On Friday afternoon, a NUM team met the representatives of the striking workers, but some of the workers did not agree to the conditions.
Zokwana said that some of the workers might have been inebriated because the meeting was held so late, and so another meeting was scheduled for Saturday morning.
