Unions finally sign wage deal with Eskom
After more than three months of negotiations, Eskom and trade unions have reached an agreement.
The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) signed a salary increase agreement of 7.5% for the first year and a 7% increase for the following year.
#UPDATE: Eskom and trade unions @NUM_Media and @Numsa_Media signed a 3-year wage agreement just before 02:00 this morning, a move that enables @Eskom_SA to focus on improving its productivity levels and efficiencies in an effort to turnaround the company. pic.twitter.com/Wcamg5PHGR— Khulu Phasiwe (@KhuluPhasiwe) August 30, 2018
