protestEWN reports that the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) and the United Front will be picketing outside Eskom’s headquarters at Megawatt Park on Thursday over various issues involving the power utility.  

The union says it will hand over a memorandum of demands focusing on Eskom’s outrageous request for a 19.9% tariff increase and labour brokering, amongst other matters.  The union says corruption on the part of Eskom’s management and board, as well as what it calls "the apartheid wage gap" in the power utility’s workplace, are some of its major concerns.
