The trade union Solidarity has signed a wage agreement on Tuesday with electricity supplier Eskom.

“After having perused Eskom’s offer last week and consulting our members, the members have decided to accept the offer,” says Solidarity spokesperson, Jaco Kleinhans.

The agreement entails that Solidarity members in Eskom will receive an average wage increase of 8% this year, with a guaranteed minimum of 7%.

Next year the employees will receive an 8% guaranteed minimum wage increase.

"We regard the agreement that was signed between Solidarity and Eskom as the first step in a joint endeavour to ensure that South Africans will not have to worry about electricity supplies in the future," says Kleinhans.
