JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (Sept. 29, 2010)—The union representing tire workers in South Africa said it partially has ended its strike at the nation's tire factories.
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa said its members will return to work Sept. 30 at factories owned by Apollo Tyres South Africa (Pty.) Ltd., Goodyear South Africa Ltd. and Continental Tyre S.A. (Pty.) Ltd., as well as at a belting plant owned by Veyance Technologies. NUMSA said it won wage increases from those companies.
The union said the strike hasn't been settled with Bridgestone South Africa Holdings (Pty.) Ltd.'s, which operates two plants in the country.
