Negative Labour Relations
>Employers may have to disclose information about workplace issues to union representatives√ that could be the core of their competitive advantage.
>Employers may not dismiss employees at will√, as procedures have to be followed.
Some businesses may feel that the LRA gives employees too much power as it creates lengthy procedures, e.g. consulting with workplace forums.
>Employers may not get a court interdict to stop a strike.
Strike actions always result in loss of production√ for which employers may not claim.
>Some trade unions may not promote the mandate of their members√ but embark on industrial action, which is harmful to labour relations between employers and employees.
>Many employees and employers do not understand/respect the Labour Relations Act.
Labour disputes and bargaining council processes become disruptive/ time-consuming and can lead to a decrease in productivity in businesses.
Many employees take advantage of the right to strike without acknowledging their responsibilities.
