Strike Watch (Sugar)

A strike over wages at Zambia Sugar, a unit of South Africa's Illovo Sugar, has now been resolved after the company awarded permanent workers a 15 percent pay rise on Saturday. Workers at the company's Nakambala Sugar Estate went on strike on strike last week demanding a 35 percent pay rise, which led to the loss of 2,000 tonnes of production per day. As part of the deal seasonal workers were granted a 12 percent wage hike. More detail via Reuters.
