LABOUR: Firm Stand Against Strikes

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

Metrorail was quite right to take a firm stand recently against the illegal strike by security guards employed by companies contracted to provide security services on the suburban trains, says the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The guards want to be employed directly by Metrorail.

Metrorail is quite right to insist that this is a matter between the guards and the firms that employ them,” said Mr Michael Bagraim, President of the Chamber.

In fact, if Metrorail did employ the guards it could be seen as an unfair labour practice as it would give preferential treatment to the striking workers. This means it would be unfair to other workers who might have better qualifications and would like to apply for any available Metrorail security jobs.”

Mr Bagraim said the correct way to recruit was through a public process that was fair to all candidates.

The strikers may have done their own cause a lot of harm. I don’t think any employer will be keen to take on workers who resort to illegal actions in order to jump the queue for jobs. Employers want law-abiding workers.”
