Strikes hunger game

04 July 2014, 05:00

The strikes, with more unions, workers and companies involved had become a type of hunger game! We must urgently find the right players and moves that will bring lasting peace and cooperation to the workplace.

We must inspire greater mining, construction and manufacturing activity because it will lift economic growth and decrease financial hardship and joblessness. Thousands of owners of small businesses in the manufacturing, engineering, construction and service industries are concerned and ready to make a new deal. And so are hundreds of thousands of unaffiliated workers who are not working or afraid of losing their jobs and starving.

Labour relations is an ongoing campaign by employers to own and exploit the hearts, heads and hands of workers for income creation and a retaliatory campaign by unions to sign up members for their membership fees and political clout. For the sake of a healthy economy, employers must make moves to secure the allegiance and engagement of workers and to thwart the moves of trade unions to create conflict, separation and economic collapse.

There is currently strong rivalry between unions and a scramble for members, with some trade unions having bled members to the rebel kid on the block AMCU, which politically propagates economic freedom for workers. The rivalry has caused traditional union leaders to wake up and jump. The only move known to traditional union leaders for stopping the bleeding of members and membership fees to the new union is to arrange strikes and lodge extreme demands with employers. 

The way forward for employers in the war for the hearts, heads and hands of workers is to be radically innovative in the way they compose, distribute and administer the remuneration and benefits packages of workers and the way they build company cultures that resonate and reward loyalty, honesty, health, engagement, talent, responsibility, enterprise, fairness, justice, respect and dignity.

The first move to make is to call for and arrange a national employment conference on the internet for chief executives where employers will propose and vote for the strategic moves that will bring lasting labour peace, employee engagement, productivity and excellence to the workplace. Leaders of trade unions and labour institutions should preferably not be invited to participate in the conference to make sure employers secure and retain the initiative to deal with and surprise workers.
