Johannesburg - Samancor employees at Western Chrome Mines near Rustenburg, have returned to work, the company said on Tuesday.

"The leadership and unions have played a vital role in co-ordinating the safe and peaceful return to work of our employees," spokesperson Archie Palane said.

He said Samancor was encouraged by the positive turnout.

"The company has begun the induction process to ensure health and safety procedures are in place, and production is planned to commence by Thursday."

The unions and the mine had agreed to continue talks, with the help of a facilitator, in an attempt to reach a mutual agreement on issues raised by workers and the company.

Samancor granted workers leave at the beginning of October, after some of them went on strike in September demanding a monthly salary of R12 500, a R1500 sleep-out allowance and a R1500 underground allowance.

Last week, the company said it had concluded and signed its annual wage agreement with its recognised unions, the National Union of Mineworkers and UASA, on September 28. It described the offer as competitive.
