Johannesburg - The wage deal ending the three-week-long truck drivers' strike will guarantee stability in the industry, the Road Freight Bargaining Council said on Friday.

"This is a three-year-deal. This guarantees stability in the industry for a long time to come," council chairperson Dave Behrens said in Johannesburg.

The deal was staggered over three years and had a 10% wage increase in the first year, eight in the second, and nine in the third.

The first wage increase would be implemented on March 1, 2013. The negotiations were facilitated by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation, and Arbitration.

Road Freight Employers' Association chairperson Penwell Lunga said: "We set the trend for other industries and we are going to defend this agreement."
