Johannesburg - The four-week strike at Evraz Highveld Steel & Vanadium (EHS) came to an end‚ following an agreement between the company and the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa)‚ its biggest union.

The main issue‚ converting the three-shift system to a four-shift system‚ had been resolved and all operational employees had reported for duty on Monday on the new four-shift system‚ the company said on Monday.

An agreement had been reached on a compensation adjustment for employees who would suffer loss of overtime earnings due to the change of the shift structure.

The steelworks would start up on Monday and should be fully operational by the end of August. The company said it would now focus on meeting all order commitments.
