Unions, NUM and Numsa will embark on strike action at Eskom to try force the power utility to increase wages by 15% across the board along with a housing allowance increase to R2000 but cash strapped Eskom is sticking to it's stance of zero increases and no bonuses for this financial year.

David Sipunzi, General Secretary of NUM joined Business Day TV to discuss the rationale behind their demands.
