NUMSA statement on the Deadlock at Eskom

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa is mobilising all its members in Eskom, now that talks have failed to reach any agreement on the unions’ demands for a living wage and improved conditions of employment. The union has applied for a certificate of non-resolution from the CCMA.
The union is writing to Eskom CEO Brian Molefe to arrange a meeting between senior management and the Eskom Board, and senior leadership all the unions, to seek a resolution to the dispute.
If no agreement can be reached Numsa members are ready, as a last resort, to join all Eskom workers in all unions in strike action in support of our just demands. Where the NUM is already on strike, Numsa members will join them.
