Eskom says striking workers will face disciplinary hearings
20 September 2011
Eskom says any of its employees who take part in a strike will face disciplinary action.
This follows threats from the National Union of Mineworkers that its members will not pitch up for work unless they are given a 13-percent wage increase.
Eskom spokesperson Hilary Joffe says electricity is an essential service and workers are therefore banned from striking.
Eskom has moved to implement a multi-year seven-percent increase.
