The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) met with other unions, and the Eskom management as part of the Central Bargaining Forum (CBF). They met after collecting the mandate from all workers in all regions. NUMSA general Secretary Irvin Jim said the mandate from members was to accept the wage proposal.

“The salary increase is 7% across the board. The agreement shall apply from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 to all permanent bargaining unit employees employed at Eskom”.The housing allowance will increase by R400.00 for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023.

Jim said as NUMSA, they are pleased to have finally resolved this round of wage talks, particularly given the difficult circumstances that they faced. “The conditions of service which were unilaterally withdrawn, and which caused so much pain to our members, have been restored. We have also secured an improvement from last year after Eskom imposed 1.5%”.

He stressed that NUMSA will always fight to improve the conditions of the working class.
