[LISTEN] Eskom insists there will be no bonuses despite threats from unions

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) says its members view Eskom's decision not to pay bonuses as a declaration of war and deal breaker in the ongoing wage negotiations.

Eskom's spokesperson, Khulu Phasiwe, says their stance has not changed because the money is simply not there.

The issue of the bonus in terms of our initial discussions has been a separate matter and we said to the unions we will have a separate meeting and we did last week where we informed them of our position and where we stand.

Phasiwe says they met with all three unions recognised within Eskom and communicated this decision.

We did say to them there will be no bonus even what we had offered the previous two years is on the table because the company is posted a huge net loss.
