Industrial action is not permitted against Eskom? Yet it has been permitted, since last week - why only now does Eskom say it will act? Why did you not take action on Friday already? It's an unprotected strike! Fire them now! Strategic Management had to foresee this coming. Shouldn’t the wage negotiations have been addressed before the employees had to attempt to resolve this issue prior to an unprotected strike? Why wait to get to this point? Are this not strategically…🤔

And while the country is in darkness, the President is hob knobbing in Germany at G7 with the WEF clan! 😕 When? When the country is sitting at stage 8 loadshedding? When more businesses have gone under? Should have last week already. This is economic terrorism. Fire them all. Obvious, dictatorial state.

Decisively...Name and shame them. It is unacceptable conduct holding the country at ransom like that.. Impimpis Lol. And will i be refunded? Eskom is a joke! Just pull the plug or put your greedy little fingers in it yourselves. Why has it not b een done already we have been held ransom by these over stuffed staff workers.

Power supply on a knife edge, says EskomSouth Africans can brace for even greater load-shedding misery this week if Eskom suffers another major breakdown this weekend as a pay strike adds to the utility's woes.

They are using the striking workers as scapegoats they are working this along crypo money landering at the same bitcoin time as eskom , almost same hours

Load of bullocks... Good,akere they said Zuma must fall😏 How? By agreeing to demands. Paying them for striking. Rewarding them basically for criminal actions. I hope by firing them. Tipical economic saboteurs!!😠
