2010 saw aggressive strike action. AstroTech Labour and HR training specialists urged government and corporates to use strikes as a template for evaluating conditions in their own workplace. “Check whether workers have adequate tools to perform optimally, have they recently received a skills upgrade, is there a complaints forum that carefully listens and gives honest feedback to workers and employers,” Liza Van Wyk CEO of AstroTech counsels.
“Is there excessive disparity between the salaries of those at the top and the lowest paid workers? Is there a culture of accountability – managers to workers and workers to employers? The time to begin preventing the next strike and further economic destruction is now and it requires all of us to give it thoughtful consideration.”
