The South African Clothing and Textile Workers Union is planning to protest today at the National Energy Regulator of South Africa’s public hearings in Johannesburg.

Sactwu says they cannot accept Eskom electricity tariff hike application. 

South African Research Institute in Sactwu Simon Eppel said they have conducted interviews with companies and workers if Eskom goes ahead with its increase massive job loses will occur. 

Eppel said companies have indicated generally, that there may be large scale retrenchments.

“Obviously as SACTWU we can not condone actions which threaten jobs of local workers, particularly in the context that there is such large unemployment in South Africa” Eppel added.
