The World Federation of Trade Unions representing more than 92 million workers around the world, fully supports its affiliated organisation in South Africa: National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) for its decision to call for a total shutdown in Eskom electricity company.

The Eskom negotiation team practically is not negotiating, it has decided to follow the administration’s demands to refuse demands from the side of the workers represented by NUM.

We call the workers and the people of South Africa to support the struggle of the Eskom employees, to intensify their struggle for dignified life, for high quality infrastructure, decent jobs, for cheap energy for all the working people.
