Eskom workers seal wage deal

Solidarity has agreed to an 8.5% wage increase for the next two years for its Eskom members.

“The agreement was also signed by the National Union of Mineworkers and the National Union of Metalworkers of SA,” said Solidarity spokesperson Deon Reyneke.

The agreement included an 8.5% standby allowance increase for both years, a 10 to 12% existing performance bonus, and a housing allowance increase from R2000 to R2300 per month.

The agreement made provision for further negotiations, should the inflation rate rise above the agreed-upon annual salary increase percentage.

“With this condition, all parties to the agreement accept that a protective clause, which provides for further negotiation should the inflation rate rise above 8.5% during the next two years, is built into the agreement,” said Reyneke.

Ndlela Radebe, acting NUM energy sector coordinator, said the wage agreement made provision for further negotiations should the inflation rate rise above the agreed-upon annual salary increase percentage.

“All parties to the agreement accept that a protective clause, which provides for further negotiation should the inflation rate rise above 8.5% during the next two years, is built into the agreement,” said Radebe.
