Num threatens Eskom with strike

Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (Num) threatened power utility Eskom with a strike on Wednesday, over what it said was a unilateral decision to implement a 7% wage increase.

Num said it had "adopted a programme of action that includes lunch hour pickets and marches... which will culminate in a strike action against Eskom".

The utility, which is responsible for virtually all the power generated in South Africa, is locked in wage talks with other unions as well.
