It appears a strike by petrol attendants and vehicle industry workers may be coming to an end after the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and the Fuel Retailers Association (FRA) reached an agreement late on Wednesday.
Numsa's National Executive Committee (NEC) is scheduled to meet this morning to discuss the agreement.
Both parties have been negotiating in an attempt to bring the three week long strike to an end.
Workers affiliated to Numsa went on strike after wage negotiations deadlocked.
They have been demanding a double digit increase.
While an agreement has reportedly been reached, Numsa is yet to formally sign it.
The FRA's Reggie Sibiya said he hopes Numsa will sign the agreement by the end of today.
"We were ready to sign it off last night, but Numsa indicated that they needed to take this offer to their NEC for rectification. We are hopeful we will be able to sign the agreement by the end of today."
The industrial action has been marred by accusations of intimidation and violence.
A Somali petrol attendant died earlier this month after he was allegedly attacked by striking workers.
The 55-year-old victim was allegedly attacked at a Grassy Park petrol station while he and a colleague were working.
