Johannesburg - Striking workers at five of seven vehicle manufacturing plants would go back to work on Monday, the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) said on Sunday.
The strike saw production lines at major vehicle manufacturers that included Toyota, BMW and Nissan shut down and production halted during the three week strike.
However, workers at Toyota in Durban and BMW in Pretoria were unhappy with the offer, the union said.
General secretary Irvin Jim said workers at Toyota had secured a R3,25 adjustment last year, and now wanted more.
At BMW, the employees, who had already embarked on a strike before the rest of the industry joined in, demanded that their shift allowance be increased.
"Numsa office bearers are working with our members at Toyota and BMW to accept the offer," said Jim.
The deal included an 11.5% for 2013, 10% for 2014 and 2015, a R1 200 transport allowance per annum, a 70% medical allowance and a R750 housing allowance.
