Numsa: Our battle at Medupi is far from over
An unprotected strike by thousands of workers aligned to Numsa is now in its seventh week.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) has warned that its battle at the Medupi Power Station with Eskom's contractors is far from over.
It says another meeting will be held at the end of this week to respond to an attempt to get workers off the site.
An unprotected strike by thousands of workers aligned to Numsa is now in its seventh week and has brought most construction to a halt, while work on unit six continues.
Workers there are unhappy about alleged unfair treatment by contractors that includes bonus payments and living conditions.
Numsa president Andrew Chirwa says they're busy engaging with workers and contractors.
"We've fought against the interdict and it was not given. Eskom did not get an interdict to evict workers. Those workers are still there on site. We're engaging with workers and contractors and we'll be back in court by Friday, but we're hoping by then we'll have good results from the engagements."
