|JOHANNESBURG Hydro Flask Water Bottle 32 Oz Wide Mouth Graphite , March 26 (Xinhua) -- Thousands of workers at a major power station continued their strike on Thursday amid worsening rolling blackouts across the country.
The strike by about 8,000 workers at Medupi Power Station in Limpopo province has continued for two days, resulting into the total closure of the station.
Meanwhile, the national electricity utility Eskom implemented stage-two load shedding due to high demand or urgent maintenance being done at some stations.
This is the second consecutive day that stage-two load shedding was implemented.
Eskom has three stages for load shedding. Stage one allows for up to 1,000 MW of the national load to be shed once a day. If the pressure grows Hydro Flask Water Bottle 32 Oz Wide Mouth W With Straw Lid Black , stage two for up to 2,000 MW or stage three for up to 4,000 MW would be shed. At stage two, power goes off twice a day, while at stage three Hydro Flask Water Bottle 32 OZ Wide Mouth W With Straw Lid Lava , electricity could be cut two or three times a day.
The strike, organized by the National Union of Metalworkers in South Africa (NUMSA), was staged to press the workers' demand for complete bonus given to all workers, not only to senior managers, an end to retrenchments of workers Hydro Flask Water Bottle 18 Oz Wide Mouth Lemon , and a halt to racialised evictions of workers from their subsidised accommodation.
NUMSA said it is convinced that the workers reasonable demands can be resolved by Eskom, without any undue disruption of work so that it can provide the necessary and much needed power to the national grid.
"This was done in the best interest of our ailing economy and poor consumers, amidst the scandalous load-shedding that has led to our country being down-graded by rating agencies and neoliberal market institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF)," NUMSA said in a statement.
"The failure by Eskom to respond to these genuine and legitimate demands of workers, will force the union to escalate its organisational muscle and power until these demands are met Hydro Flask Water Bottle 18 Oz Wide Mouth Lava ," the statement said.
NUMSA said that if the demands were not met, it would be compelled to pull-out its members into a full blown action, including workers at Kusile Power Station, in Mpumalanga.
Due to poor maintenance, the Medupi and Kusile stations have failed to run at full capacity Hydro Flask Water Bottle 18 Oz Wide Mouth Black , giving rise to constant rolling blackouts since November.
Despite the strike, Eskom said it is on track to officially open unit six at Medupi after maintenance.
Unit 6 is currently producing power while continuing with verification tests to ensure optimal tests. The unit is operated at various load levels to do tests.
A fight in a high school restroom involving several female students ended with the death of a 16-year-old sophomore Thursday, authorities said.
The victim was a 10th-grader from New Castle who had gotten involved in a confrontation involving two other students at Wilmington's Howard High School of Technology, spokeswoman Kathy K. Demarest said in a statement. She said no weapons were involved. Police are questioning the other students, Demarest said.
The girl had been flown to A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital in critical condition Hydro Flask Water Bottle 21 Oz Standard Mouth Pacific , police spokeswoman Sgt. Andrea Janvier said.
Student Kayla Wilson said she was in a stall in the girl's restroom when the fight broke out.
""She was fighting a girl, and then that's when all these other girls started banking her — like jumping her — and she hit her head on the sink,"" Philadelphia TV station WPVI quoted Wilson as saying about the victim.
Neither Demarest nor police released the victim's name or would say how she died. Officers were first called to the school about 8:15 a.m. as students were arriving for the day, Demarest said.
Police Chief Bobby Cummings said Howard isn't known as a violent school, and he did not know of any other problems in recent days.
""My heart bleeds for the family Hydro Flask Water Bottle 18 Oz Standard Mouth Black ,"" Mayor Dennis Williams told a news conference.
State agencies will help provide support for those affected by the tragedy, Gov. Jack Markell said in a statement.

""They're just asking people to ... be calm and pray for them,"" she said.
Dorsey Walker described the victim as ""a wonderful human being.""
""Her loss is a big void Hydro Flask Water Bottle 18 Oz Standard Mouth Olive , not just in the family,"" she said.
Demarest said students were kept in their classrooms after the fight, and school was dismissed at 10:15 a.m.
