Last week, the workers refused to sign an agreement to bring the strike to an end.
Some members have now finally also signed an agreement - on condition that that management doesn't dismiss those who participated in the protests - and withdraw all interdicts against workers.
Workers have been demonstrating at the Pretoria west campus gate and occasionally clashed with the police.
Group spokesperson Vusi Mahlangu said, “We agreed with the minimum wage of R5,000 on the condition that by 2018 workers will have reached minimum wage of R10,000. The workers will also be part of a task team that will assess the insourcing.”
