Johannesburg - Workers were happy to return to work following the settlement of a labour dispute with the Sun City resort, Cosatu North West said on Saturday.

"All workers are going back to work, starting from Saturday and Sunday, after a long discussion between management and worker leaders facilitated by the CCMA," Congress of SA Trade Unions regional secretary Solly Phetoe said in a statement.

"All workers who were dismissed or suspended and those who were on a solidarity action are going back to work and the unions will be dealing with all issues that workers raised."

On Friday, the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) said the strike at the Sun International resort in the North West had been resolved.

"After two days of CCMA-facilitated talks a settlement agreement was reached today at noon, bringing the strike to an end," spokesperson Laura Mseme said at the time.

Mseme said the SA Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers Union, the SA Transport and Allied Workers Union, and Sun International business partners signed an agreement to end the week-long strike.

On Sunday, Sun International spokesperson Michael Farr said about 160 people employed across the Sun City resort were under investigation for the theft of food and beverage consumables.

"Only 30 of these staff members are Sun City employees. The balance are employed by four external service providers," he said.

Phetoe said Cosatu would not rest until their workers were treated as human beings at Sun City or elsewhere in the province.

"We will continue as the federation to defend and intervene when our members are exploited by anyone in this province," he said.

"We call on all workers who will be going back to work to report any bad treatment against them to the unions or to the federation."
