The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) and the National Union of Mineworkers says they have noted a report by Fin24 which claims that workers at Eskom have rejected the wage proposal.
NUMSA spokesperson Phakamile Hlubi-Majola said they want to distance themselves from this article. “It is false and misleading and does not represent the position of the unions at all.”
NUMSA and NUM said they will be engaging Eskom in the Central Bargaining Forum on Friday July 2022 regarding the proposal that Eskom has tabled.
Hlubi- Majola reiterated that any reports or claims in the media suggesting that they have either accepted or rejected an offer at Eskom are false. “We call on media houses to be responsible in their reporting. When they publish fake news it can have a very detrimental impact on the negotiations process”.
