According to deputy editor at Financial Mail, Sikonathi Mantshantsha another strike action is looming for Eskom planned for next week Tuesday.
It has been revealed that Eskom's executives continue to enjoy a scheme that costs the parastatal R500 000 a month.
Now the unions, upon hearing this, is demanding a 12% wage increase while Eskom is offering 6%.
They are living large. In addition to their exorbitant salaries, they have unlimited credit cards to maintain their cars for about 400 top managers. This is quite exorbitant and you and I are paying for it.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at Financial Mail
As long as you work for Eskom, you can have as many vehicles as you want and drive to the end of the world and Eskom will pay for it.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at Financial Mail
Mantshantsha says the unions are completely ignoring the fact that Eskom employees cannot strike.
The unions have vowed to that members will not hesitate to down tools if they don’t get what they want. This means South Africans could experience another round of load shedding if an agreement is not reached.
