    Let's hope they stick with it

    Eskom employees are already paid way above norm on avg anyway
    I doubt that the white collar staff are part of the union...

    Seems legit... checked the metadata on that file, it came from Nto Rikhotso who is employed there as the communications officer.

    None, just a useless reassurance. It is what companies do when there are strikes.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    I swear I saw an article saying the opposite in the last 2 months as I even discussed it in May with an Eskom guy.

    Obviously, I canít find it now.

    Yeah that is mostly what I expect..

    But the optimistic part of me would hope that there are actually contingency plans somewhere...

    Or maybe it was just regular maintanance.

    The fact that they have generators at MWP shows you the confidence in their own grid and staff.

    /joking itís normal practice for any utility.
