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.
