Construction labourers have returned to work at South Africa’s World Cup stadiums following a week-long strike.
Contractors were only willing to offer a 10.5 per cent wage rise, while workers and unions were demanding 13 per cent. A deal has now been struck at 12 per cent.
According to the Daily Mail, South Africa’s minister for tourism Marthinus Van Schalkwyk said: “Everything is back on track and no construction dates have been shifted.”
The World Cup is to be held in South Africa next summer.
