Johannesburg - Production at Toyota's Prospecton Plant in Durban will resume on Wednesday after a legal strike at one of its suppliers was resolved, the company said.

"(Toyota) is confident that it will be able to return to full production tomorrow (Wednesday)," spokesperson Leo Kok said in a statement on Tuesday.

About 480 workers affiliated to the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) at Toyota Boshoku in Durban went on strike on October 17 for a R1 500 retention bonus. This plant makes seats and door trims for Toyota vehicles.

The dispute started in 2009, when the company decided to give only one category of workers, the artisans, a R1 500 retention bonus. Numsa wanted the bonus given to all workers at the factory.

Numsa was not was not immediately available to comment.
