Workers involved in the construction of the Medupi power station in Lephalale, Limpopo, marched to the local Eskom offices on Friday to hand over a memorandum of demands, Numsa said.
“The memorandum dealt with a wide range of issues, the main one being that locals employed in the project are regarded as general workers,” National Union of Metalworkers of SA regional secretary Jerry Morulane said.
“We are saying this cannot be allowed because they need to train and develop the workers. The workers need to continue with their lives beyond this project.”
He said nearly 3000 workers participated in the march.
This number could not be immediately confirmed by police.
