JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) held a joint press briefing on Tuesday to discuss Eskom’s wage offer of 0 percent.
The unions had earlier said that workers should not suffer because of plundering at the state-owned entity.
Two trade unions — Num and Numsa — will hold a one day shutdown at Eskom on Thursday over 0% salary increases, despite many workers being barred from striking as they are deemed to render essential services. https://t.co/XVO1dk7tvP— Mail & Guardian (@mailandguardian) June 12, 2018
