SA#Eskom granted interdict against strike
─── 05:59 Sat, 25 Jun 2022
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.
