#Eskom granted interdict against strike | News Article

Eskom has secured an interdict to halt the illegal strike action at nine of its power stations.

The power utility reached a deadlock with trade unions in wage negotiations earlier this week.

It says a combination of unit breakdowns, lack of diesel reserves and the protest action pushed it to introduce Stage 4 power cuts on Friday morning.

Eskom’s Chief Operations Officer, Jan Oberholzer, says striking workers have been intimidating non-striking workers.

The utility appealed to its striking workers to put South Africa first.

The latest outages are going to last until Sunday evening.
