(15 July 2014) “Bargaining Council for the Construction industry
Government's desire to establish a Bargaining Council for the Construction industry is sheer folly: centralised bargaining is not a ' one size shoe fits all' to our IR and collective bargaining realities and challenges. Like the Metal/Engineering industry, the Construction and Civil Engineering industry have a few major players and hundreds of small businesses and 8 or so unions, unlike e.g. the sugar industry where one has 3 or 4 sugar producers of approximate size etc and 2 or so unions (where centralised bargaining may be appropriate).”

(20 June 2014) "The insightful article by Gavin Hartford in today’s Business Day (18th June) says it so comprehensively and soundly. His insights are in line with my own views published in the People Dynamics journal a few weeks after Marikana (Oct 2012.Vol30.No 10). It is now all about bridging the 'trust deficit' as a business imperative and RUBIQ Consulting ( 031 7670608 ) has a RIFT Process (Relationship Improvement and Facilitating Trust) designed to heal the rifts in relationships both post - and pre-strikes (in the latter case as a pre-emptive risk management intervention)"
