Union leader Irvin Jim said on Monday, South Africa’s main manufacturing union, NUMSA, has agreed to end a four-week strike after accepting a wage increase offer from employers. More than 200,000 members of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) downed tools on July 2 to demand higher wages, halting production at automakers including General Motors and hitting work at new power plants. Members of South Africa’s largest union will return to work on Tuesday after it accepted a 10 percent annual pay rise fixed for three years for its lowest-paid workers.
