NUM denies Eskom deal
THE NATIONAL Union of Mineworkers ( NUM) yesterday denied signing a wage deal with Eskom, after its sister union, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, claimed it had done so.
“(We) reject with contempt the lies spread by Numsa shop stewards at their meeting (on Thursday), where they alleged that the NUM has signed a 5.6 percent wage increment with the parastatal,” the union said in a statement.
Eskom had referred the NUM wage dispute to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration. – Sapa
