The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) East London branch held what was supposed to be a bilateral meeting between the NUM East London branch and the National Executives of Eskom Distribution. The meeting was supposed to deal with critical issues that hamper the service delivery of electricity in Eastern Cape and the challenges that are being faced by employees on the ground.
The following are the major items that we were tabled to the National Distribution Executives.
The reasons we could not proceed with the meeting was based on Eskom management not wanting to account for the wasteful expenditure in flying four executives in business class from the same department. The Eskom National IR Managing Director, Tito Zwane intentionally collapsed the meeting, on the basis that he failed to give direction to the meeting. He further refused to engage at the request of the NUM to embark on picketing on the issues above .The picketing was going to take place outside the working hours, meaning before 07h45 and during lunch time.
