Truck drivers at Grain Carriers have agreed to end their strike after a successful meeting with their employer.

Grain Carriers made a commitment to pay the drivers a lump sum of R4 000 each tomorrow. The company promised to go ahead and calculate the any balance owed after the lump sum payment and pay it off on the following pay date.

Truck drivers went on strike after the company continued paying them using an incentive scheme which expired on 28 February and negotiations stalled.
