Eskom managers want more money – or load shedding may return

Senior managers at Eskom are taking the power utility to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) to demand higher salaries and bonuses, Rapport reported.

These managers, who earn between R1.5-3 million per year, warned that strike action and load shedding are on the cards if their demands are not met.

Is this not an Essential Service? Not only are thugs running the country but thug workers are holding this country to ransom. The unions have way to much sway for this country to succeed.

not even shocked by it, the feeding trough that is SA just keeps gaining more farking pigs. Shameful to earn that much and threaten load shedding when you want more, disgusting savages.

Unbelievable!

What is the basis for their demands? Is it because the company performed well this year or they think their performance deserves an increment?

Yeah they've done a real sterling job so far. Deserves a medal. Oh wait, I'm thinking of something else.

Name and shame the filthy bastards. The whole country should know who this treasonous scum is and where they live.
We should have a list like they had for the communists.

Mabuza said Eskom is selling electricity at 90 cents which costs the company 112 cents to produce.
And why is that exactly?

Eskom is spending too much money on thousands of employees that don't do any work.

President Ramaphosa needs to catch a wake up and realise that Eskom has to retrench thousands of employees, these employees can be retrenched in stages (not necessarily all at once). At least start with voluntary severances.

As for Eskom's middle and senior management that are threatening a deliberate return load shedding (presumably by means of sabotage including deliberate mismanagement), these are clearly people with criminal intent and most likely involved in sabotage prior to the 2019 elections, the solution is to aggressively investigate these people, open criminal cases against them and arrest them.

Millionaires demand salary increases meanwhile we have record unemployment where people simply have zero income and then we have a president who tells Eskom they are not allowed to lay off a single Eskom employee. If Cyril had even half a testicle he would man up and realize the issue of overstaffing and overpayed middle to upper management and rather force Eskom to make the adjustments now even though it could already be too late.

I think Eskom should institute a policy that for every new day of load shedding they will fire 1 randomly selected Manager at Eskom until load shedding ends.

Lmao this is crazy nuttobutter.

Surely this is fake news? Nobody, even the trully dimwitted would have the absolute gaul to ask this and then on top of the completely idiotic demand, the extortion attempt on top of that?
