According to the latest Reuters report, LafargeHolcim has announced that a South African union representing about 800 striking workers has accepted an 8% pay increase. The decision raises the prospects of ending a week-long walkout.

The National Union of Mineworkers, which originally demanded a 13% pay rise, has taken the latest offer to its members.

Operations at the cement maker's plants have not been affected since the strike started a week ago.
