Tools down at Medupi

Tools down at Medupi

A statement released by Eskom on Tuesday evening noted that no proper construction work has been conducted at the Medupi power station apart from Unit Six since the end of March. This is because of what it says is an illegal work stoppage on the 25th of March. The utility says that since then, workers have refused to come to work and are ignoring a court interdict. Most of the workers at this site are members of the metal workers union Numsa.

In March, we had a strike where workers were demanding for bonuses of R10 000 and other issues. There's no way that we as a company would refuse to speak to our workers there. We are only on the first unit here and we are hoping to come to some agreement. Currently, what's going on is that some people have been stopped from going to work, they're removed from taxis, etc. We are also monitoring the local hostels and the majority of the workers are from the Merafong facility, which is being used as some kind of a base for the organising of the strike action.

It's International No Diet Day today! It is the sixth of May which means – if you didn’t know already – that it is International No Diet Day.

The 'No Diet Day' infers this more taking time out and you shouldn't have to do that. People should be making better choices all the time. I see on CNN this morning, 2/3 of men in Europe are going to be obese;that's a concern. If we eat more than we burn up, we will gain weight and when we eat less than we burn up, we lose weight. A balance is important and one shouldn't diet to the point of losing energy.
