According to City Press, this group of managers consists of between 180 and 200 senior Eskom personnel who earn between R1.5 million and R3 million a year.
They are demanding the same 4.7% increase that the power utility recently granted to middle management.
However, middle management is also not happy with their increase as they were hoping for an increase of 7.5%.
According to the publication, the CCMA decided in favour of the workers on a similar matter last year and Eskom had to take the decision on review at the labour court.
The power utility’s wage bill has reportedly been a major contributing factor to their financial woes and it is unclear what effect the increases will have on the power utility if they are pushed through.
