WorkingOnFireTMG Digital reports that South African fire fighters who embarked on a strike over wages in Canada will return home on Tuesday.  

Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa advised in a statement:  “Following successful discussions‚ between the fire fighters and the high-level Working on Fire (WoF) team that we had dispatched to Canada‚ they have agreed to their demobilisation and to return back home to South Africa.”  Molewa dispatched a mediator from WoF late last week to resolve the dispute.  The statement added that the mediation was no longer necessary “owing to weather conditions in both Fort McMurray and Edmonton where it has been raining heavily‚ and therefore meaning that the number of international fire fighters from other countries had to return home.”
