Power utility Eskom said the contractors at Medupi Power station have started the process of disciplinary action against workers who embarked on an illegal strike on Wednesday.
Eskom Spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said so far about one-thousand workers have been fired and the number is expected to increase as the process continues.
Phasiwe said operations at Medupi will not be affected by this as many other workers have returned to work.

Phasiwe says it is important to note that of the 14 000 people who are working at the Medupi Power station many of them are not Eskom employees, they are actually employed by the contractor which is why the contractor is taking disciplinary actions against them.

Phasiwe added that so far, just over a thousand people have already been fired.
