South Africa’s Motor Industry Bargaining Council (MIBCO) components division
says between 60% and 70% of strikers in the country’s damaging automotive walk-out have returned to work.

Around 100,000 strikers across several automotive sectors downed tools in the four week stoppage, whose cost is currently being evaluated by MIBCO, with BMW South Africa already saying the dispute has cost it 13,000 vehicles in lost production.

A final agreement has yet to be signed, but MIBCO is confirming a three-year deal has been put forward comprising of a 10%, 8% and 8% settlement.

“The employers put it down as a final offer and it is time the unions understood a final offer is a final offer,” MIBCO convenor for components of South Africa,” Mark Roberts, told just-auto.

“Everyone has gone back – we call it a staggered return. What is important for us is getting the agreement signed.”
