In the case above, The employers are concerned with the wages they are getting, They claim it is less concerning the amount of work they have to do. Section 16 of LRA provides that a majority union and the shop steward of that union are entitled to any information which the union may require in order to consult or bargain effectively with the employer or which the shop steward requires in order to perform their functions effectively. They can demand all relevant information such as wage negotiations and promotions.
I think they are taking us for a fool!! They are still paying us the same amount we have been getting 5 years back...
The management does not care about our rights or needs.
How about we unite and form a strike so that they can take us seriously.
we demand 25% of increment!!!
Okay calm down, It is impossible for me to hear all of you while you speaking at the same time..
We will give you a feedback within this week. Also, we don't promote the manner which you handled things. There are other alternatives ways of doing such things.
In this scenario, The mineworkers are complaining about an increment. They want at least 25%, since they have been working for more than 5 years. They are planning to form a strike so that the management can take them seriously.
In this scenario, workers decided to form a strike to make their rights heard. Unions address job security issues by petition for legislation, restricting managements to dismiss and retrench employees. Addition to this, They actively participated in the amendment of labour legislation.
In this scenario, The management came into an agreement that they will give the workers 20% increment as well a bonus. The meeting went well with the help of the shop steward raising valid concerns of the workers.
