The National Union of
Mineworkers (NUM) stated on Tuesday it had rejected an enhanced
wage deal from South African power utility Eskom
as it still fell short of its demands. “We have actually declined the deal and we will now get a brand-new
required from the employees so that we can continue to engage,”
Helen Diatile, the union’s chief mediator informed Reuters.
She said the business had actually raised its deal to 5.75 percent
from 5 percent however that still disappointed the union’s demand
for a 15 percent wage increase for its least expensive paid members.
