Manchester City Council has calculated that absences attributed to stress cost the council approximately £5 million a year. In addition there are also implications for the effective management of service delivery, which on occasions are related to individual management and staff relationships. These problems require resolution. Manchester's approach to stress is evolving and includes both individual and group stress risk assessment and essentially the approach strengthens the manager's ability to manage.

Auto Strikes Open Up Space for Union Reform in china « Talking Union
The workers who struck numerous auto parts plants in China have gained substantial wage increases. More significantly their successful struggles mark the emergence of China’s new industrial working class as a major active force in the Chinese economy and society. Some trade union officials are beginning to reposition their organizations as advocates for workers rather than “neutral” intermediaries between workers and management, allocating that mediating role to local governments. The first strike at the Nanhai Honda Auto Parts transmission plant in Foshan City succeeded in winning wage increases for both “student interns” and ... market research, surveys and trends
Dominique Strauss-Kahn: The Priority of Growth and Jobs -- the ...
I had the pleasure of addressing the 2nd World Congress of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago, and participating in a panel debate. I also met privately with some key union leaders. For me, three main points emerged. First, I was confirmed in my belief that, for the IMF, our interaction with the labor movement is extremely valuable. We make it a point to meet with unions, including in the context of our lending programs. Over the past few years, I have personally met international trade union leaders four times -- on the eve of important G-20 meetings -- as well as with ... market research, surveys and trends


Turkey-Balance of Payments Foreign Trade
Throughout the twentieth century, Turkey has suffered from a shortage of foreign exchange, a problem that has continued despite the improved export performance of the 1980s and the early 1990s. During the 1950-80 period, three balance of payments crises followed periods of rapid economic growth. After the crisis of the late 1950s, brought on by inflationary financial policies and excessive use of short-term commercial credits, Turkey received substantial aid from an OECD consortium, and the country's external debt had to be rescheduled. The foreign-exchange shortage of the 1960s was less the result of inflation than of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Turkey-Economic Development Growth and Structure of the Economy
At the birth of the republic, Turkey's industrial base was weak because Ottoman industries had been undermined by the capitulations. World War I and the War of Independence (1919-22) also had extensively disrupted the Turkish economy. The loss of Ottoman territories, for example, cut off Anatolia from traditional markets. Agricultural output--the source of income for most of the population--had dropped sharply as peasants went to war. Even the production of wheat, Turkey's main crop, was insufficient to meet domestic demand. In addition, massacres and the emigration of Greeks, Armenians, and Jews, who had dominated ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
South Africa: Companies Introduce Technology to Fight Illegal Mining
Johannesburg — HARMONY Gold's claim last week that booby trap devices, apparently laid by illegal miners, had been found at one of its Free State mines returned the spotlight to a problem that the company has spent the past 12 months trying to eliminate. A year has passed since a disaster at Harmony's disused Eland shaft, near Welkom, killed at least 84 men who had been illicitly looking for gold. That prompted an illegal-mining crackdown co-ordinated by Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu, who set up a stakeholder forum including representatives of the Department of Mineral Resources, mining companies and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
