Trade Union Recognition

trade union recognition special research report Photo by
Once the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) accepts an application and the bargaining unit has been agreed on or decided, the CAC panel has to decide whether to call a ballot on union recognition. The main test is the level of union membership in the bargaining unit. If the CAC panel is not satisfied that the majority of the workers in the bargaining unit belong to the union making the application, it has to call a ballot on union recognition. If necessary, the CAC panel can require: you to provide information concerning the workers in a bargaining unit the union to provide information concerning the union members in a ...
Stabroek News - The Trade Union Recognition Board has nothing to ...
The Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GB&GWU) is paying keen attention to recent statements being made by the Minister of Labour, Manzoor Nadir and Chief Labour Officer (CLO), Yoganand Persaud on the television and in the newspapers. The union has taken note that these gentlemen are now saying that they recognize the GB&GWU as the bargaining agent for workers at the Bauxite Company of Guyana Inc (BCGI). In the case of Minister Nadir, he is saying before he acts he has to await the decision of the Trade Union Recognition and Certification Board. This is not the truth because the board has nothing to do with the Minister ... market research, surveys and trends
A deepening of collusion between Govt. and BCGI
On Tuesday May 18, the Workers Committee formed by the Bauxite Company of Guyana Inc. (BCGI) met with the Trade Union Recognition and Certification Board (TUR&CB), under the chairmanship of Justice Prem Persaud, and was advised of a pending survey at the site to determine if the workers still wanted the Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GB&GWU) to represent them. While the Union is confident it has the support of the workers, the Board’s recent action given its five-month old inaction to a complaint before it by the Union on this impasse is worthy of attention. On January 12, 2010 the GB&GWU met with the Board and in a ... market research, surveys and trends


Trade unions and strikes: a snapshot of the industrial scene
We are not going back to the old battles. I will say now that there's going to be no repeal of all Tory union laws. That is not what the country or your members want. Ballots before strikes are here to stay. No mass or flying pickets. All the ghosts of time past, they are exorcised. Leave them where they lie. So said Tony Blair in September at this year's TUC conference, in a speech which received a rather subdued response from the delegates. Blair's view is often supported by politicians and academics alike. They suggest that we now have a more rational and level headed way of conducting industrial relations in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

At the heart of the BFTU saga
In the following article BFTU Secretary General GADZANI MHOTSHA* explains the dynamics at the heart of the trade unions saga with emphasis on collective bargaining. This article has been influenced by reports in the media and comments from some trade union leaders regarding the subject of bargaining in the public service.  As a trade union leader and one who has been following the transformation in labour relations within the public sector, I feel that a lot is being wrongfully portrayed and that both the workers and the public are being fed with some untruths. The comments that I make in this article are my personal ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
• BOFEPUSU in labour pains
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble: Commissioner of Labour, Rose Sennanyana, must be feeling like the witches in Shakespeare�s Macbeth as she watches the bubbling alphabet soup of civil service trade unionism: BTU, NALCGPWU, BLLAWU, BOPEU and BOSETU. Sennanyana, who recently published a notice of application for industry recognition of the Botswana Federation of Public Sector Unions (BOFEPUSU), was hoping to brew a potion that will stop the running battle between civil service unions and government. Instead, the notice is turning out to be a spell that is piling up toil and trouble � yielding twice ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Grunwick dispute at AllExperts
the union. The Post Office union agreed to deliver Grunwick's mail on the condition that ACAS would now be able to consult the Grunwick workers, which Ward at first did not agree with but complied with eventually. ACAS could therefore only ballot the strikers and a small proportion of those still at work (who had received a pay raise). ACAS recommended on this evidence that there should be recognition of APEX but the management rebutted this by publishing an internal opinion poll which showed that those working were hostile to union recognition and challenging ACAS in the courts. Three Labour Government Ministers on the ...
