Johannesburg - Striking workers at retailer Clicks Group [JSE:CLS] returned to work on Monday, management said.

"Employees have returned to work and Clicks remains open to discussions with the union in order to resolve the dispute," the company said.

Clicks said trade continued as usual at its 400 stores during the three day strike by the SA Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers' Union (Saccawu).

Saccawu spokesperson Mduduzi Mbongwe confirmed the workers' return, but said the parties still had to decide on a date for the continued wage negotiations.

He did not want preempt the outcome of negotiations with Clicks.

"We are equally committed to finding a solution to the wage dispute."

The protected strike began on Thursday after the parties failed to reach agreement on Clicks' annual wage increase.

Clicks said it paid a 9.5% increase to its staff within the bargaining unit, which Saccawu rejected. It was demanding a 10.6% hike.

This amounted to an increase of R397 across the board.

There was a difference of R42 between the union demands and the company's position.

Saccawu rejected the offer after five months of wage negotiations.
