Johannesburg - Talks aimed at resolving a three-week strike in the automotive components sector have deadlocked, the National Union of Metalworkers of SA said on Saturday.

"The talks deadlocked shortly after midnight and we shall be interacting [with employers] during weekend," deputy general secretary Karl Cloete said.

The talks began on Friday afternoon, after the union's petrol attendant strike was resolved.

On Friday, Numsa signed off on a wage deal that secured an 11.6% increase for petrol attendants for this year, a nine percent increase for next year, and another nine percent increase for the following year.

This meant petrol attendants would receive a wage increase of R2 per hour as of 2 October.

They were expected back at work on Monday.
