South Africa's Energy Giant Eskom, Unions In New Wage Talks

Power utility Eskom initially told unions that there would be a 0% increase for their members. Power outages were then felt across the country as workers threatened to down tools at power stations. Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan stepped in and told Eskom's board that they had to make an offer to employees, and are now negotiating with unions, coming in with a 4,7% offer.
