Eskom close to a settlement with illegal striking workers

It looks like Eskom and striking workers are close to an agreement on a new three year contract including salary adjustments of 7.5% in 2018/19 and 7% in 2019/20 and 7% in 2020/2021, a cost of living adjustments annually to the housing allowance of all bargaining unit employees, and a once-off cash payment of R10,000 after tax to be paid to each employee in August as part of the wage settlement.

However, the union is demanding amnesty for all workers engaged in the illegal strike before they return to their jobs.
