A two-week long strike by the National Union of Mineworkers at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane, Limpopo, has ended, the NUM announced on Tuesday.

Construction Industry"Parties have agreed that workers will get their R3000 bonuses in two parts. Firstly R1000 on the eighth [August 8] and then again R2000 in December," NUM spokesman Lesiba Seshoka said in a statement.

"Parties also agreed that those who leave the contract before the end of the term either due to retrenchment or lapse of their contracts will also receive their full bonus," he said.

The construction consortium WBHO originally gave workers until Monday to return to work or face dismissal, maintaining that the strike was illegal.

However, the NUM asked that this deadline be extended to Tuesday.

Workers were upset at a decision by WBHO management to pay their bonuses for December this year only on completion of the stadium in November next year.

The stadium will be one of those which will host Fifa 2010 Soccer World Cup matches.
