The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has this afternoon declared a wage dispute with Eskom after both parties have reached a dreadlock.

The NUM demands a wage increase of 12% for the highest paid employees and a 13% wage increase for the lowest while Eskom only offers an increment of 7%.

The NUM and Eskom could not find a common ground and the dispute will be referred to the CCMA on Monday.

The NUM is extremely disappointed and angry that Eskom still refuses to close the apartheid wage gap within the company. It is a matter of fact that white employees still earn more money than black employees within Eskom, irrespective of them doing the same job.

Amongst NUM’s demands are: One year wage agreement, selling of leave, abolishment of T4 Grade and a housing allowance of R5 000 every month.

The NUM remains unshakeable on its demands.
