Solidarity, Eskom meet over pay dispute

Sep 07 2011 11:47

Johannesburg - The first dispute meeting between Solidarity and Eskom will be held at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on Wednesday, the trade union said.

Spokesperson Moira-Marie Kloppers said the two parties would meet in a bid to settle the drawn out wage dispute at Eskom.

"Solidarity declared a wage dispute with Eskom last week, after the company's one-sided implementation of a two-year wage agreement for a 7% increase led to a breach of confidence between the company and its employees," she said.

The trade union said it was hoped that Eskom would make a formal wage offer of an 8% increase and put forward a plan for increasing the housing allowance over the next three years.
