Trade union Solidarity and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) say they are consulting members over Eskom's 4.7% wage offer.
Both unions, along with the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) have been in talks with Eskom's top management over its initial decision on a 0% salary hike.
Solidarity wants a 9% wage hike while Numsa is pushing for 15%.
Spokesperson at Solidarity, Deon Reyneke says the matter is under consideration.
We welcome the fact that Eskom moved from 0% to 4.7% and we will take this offer seriously and discuss it with our members. The fact is we are still busy negotiating. We will tomorrow morning present our point of view with regard to the offer and discuss it with the unions.— Deon Reyneke, Spokesperson at Solidarity
Our members will give us a mandate on whether they will be accepting that offer or not. For us as the NUM it is an opening offer, so we do not consider it an offer.— Livhuwani Mammburu, NUM national spokesperson
