Workers downed tools last week amidst reports of damage possibly resulting in load shedding. EWN’s Gia Nicolaides reports...
A letter believed to have been sent to Eskom workers who did not take part in the wage increase strike on Thursday. Picture: @KhuluPhasiwe/Twitter.

Eskom on Tuesday offered workers a salary hike of 4.7%, after initially offering 0%.

According to National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) spokesperson Livhuwani Mamburu, the offer comes along with a four-year guarantee of inflation-linked increases.

Workers downed tools last week amidst many reports of intimidation and damage to infrastructure which Eskom claims have resulted in load shedding.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

I don’t know if this will be good enough. It’s about 10% less than they asked for…

Unions say Eskom hasn’t taken their demands seriously from the get-go…
