Thousands of Eskom employees confirmed today that while they would not yet embark on strike action, they have resolved to retain their right to take industrial action if their demands are not met.

The National Union of Mineworkers, national Union of Metalworkers and Solidarity are giving Eskom until Tuesday to put an improved offer on the table.

NUM, who represents about 32 000 workers employed at Eskom, criticised managers for spending more than R12.5 million on World Cup tickets.

Eskom’s managing director of distribution, Ayanda Noah, conceded that the parastatal had purchased over 1 100 tickets,of which about 700 were hospitality tickets, worth nearly R17 000.
