Central Rand GoldANA reports that Central Rand Gold (CRG) said on Wednesday it has reached agreement with union representatives to end the 11-day industrial action following "robust negotiations".  

This comes after workers embarked on a strike at CRG on 6 May after wage negotiations collapsed.  CRG on Wednesday said it has agreed that workers would be paid a bonus payment in the form of a "13th cheque" in December.  This payment would be equivalent to 50% of each employee's basic pay.  Union representatives have since notified their members of the settlement and all employees have apparently returned to work.  CRG lost up to 11 days' production to date as a direct result of the strike and was forced to run with a skeleton staff.
