Strike looms as Num rejects Eskom offer

Aug 17 2011 18:24
Johannesburg - The National Union of Mineworkers (Num)  said on Wednesday its members at power utility Eskom had rejected the company's 7% pay rise offer and threatened a strike should the company refuse to move.

Num and other unions at the utility that supplies almost all of SA power,  are seeking 13% wage increases and are demanding raises of at least double digits.

"There was sufficient consensus that if Eskom continues to refuse to budge, then it must be tackled through a strike action," the union said.

The union will seek further talks before it decides to take the dispute to arbitration.
