NUM: No deal signed with Eskom

Jul 26 2013 12:23

Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) on Friday denied signing a wage deal with Eskom after sister union Numsa claimed it had done so.

"[We] reject with contempt the lies spread by Numsa shop stewards at their meeting yesterday [Thursday] where they alleged that the NUM has signed a 5.6% wage increment with the parastatal," the union said in a statement.

Eskom had referred the NUM wage dispute to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration.

"The NUM has on a number of occasions shown its displeasure with Eskom's approach to industrial relations, as well as its proposal for a five year deal," the NUM said.

National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) president Cedric Gina said he was not part of the shop stewards' meeting. However, what the NUM did by issuing the media statement "actually flies against the principles of Cosatu".

"If the shop stewards said that, then the management of [the] NUM should have approached the Numsa leadership and raised this instead of doing it through the media."
