The solidarity and strength of the FAWU membership, bolstered by strong international support, has produced a successful resolution to the nearly 4 month strike at the Kraft Elandsfontein site in South Africa . The union achieved its essential demands, including an increase in the base rate and a new bonus system and severance pay agreement.

On the crucial issue of disciplining union members and shop stewards for their involvement in the strike, FAWU secured assurances that would prevent disciplinary dismissals.

FAWU through the IUF has expressed warm appreciation for the international solidarity and support it received throughout their struggle.
