7 000 Thousands Contract Worker In Medupi Face Job Cut By End oF December 2018!!

Tsa-LEPHALALE

Eskom has announced that 7 000 Construction workers at the Construction site of the R135Billion Medupi power station at Lephalale will lose their jobs by the end of 2018.

 

The power utility is reducing its workforce at Medupi as the Construction is nearing its end.

 

About 18 000 people have been employed on construction, since work began in 2007.

 

Medupi power station project Director Phillip Dukashes says is winding down and that by 2020, all six units will be up and running.

 

” We currently have 13 500 people and because the project is coming to an end, by the time we reach December of this year, 7 000 people will be demobilised – or will not be required in the project. So, we will drop in terms of numbers. Obviously we have put things in place to try to minimize impact of demobilisation of resources on the people. All of them have been trained, so they have been up-skilled to make sure that they can enter the job market at better level than they enter at Medupi.
