The petrol attendant strike is over.
The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) has signed an agreement with the Fuel Retailers Association ending the three-week strike around the country.
Numsa has secured an agreement of an 11.6 percent wage increase in the first year and nine percent for the following two years.
The union announced the agreement at a press conference on Gauteng's East Rand.
Numsa’s Irvin Jim says most regions accepted the offer which will be implemented from the beginning of October.
"In the light of the majority having agreed that we must settle, we felt we should go ahead and not delay the signing of the agreement in the interest of those poor garage workers. We can’t allow a situation where they will actually lose a month’s salary."
