When a registered union represents the majority of workers in the workplace, there are usually additional requests to “union representatives” (TUR) within the workplace and as a result of relevant information. In addition to the right to strike to enforce rights, the registered union can again apply to the CCMA for a mandatory declaration of award. For some strange reason, the LRA seems to be preventing these unions from going on strike over information. The purpose of a recognition agreement is to give the employer the ability to strictly control the activity of the union and business managers. Without such an agreement, the stewards of the shop can go wild. That is, they can get into trouble and waste valuable production time dealing with union issues instead of earning the money they are paid. Through the Recognition Agreement, imposing strict controls on shop Steward-Meetings activities with union members If a union can prove that its members represent the majority of all workers in the workplace, the union is entitled to final recognition. In other words, it is entitled to organizing rights under the LRA. Employers can enter into collective agreements with registered unions representing the majority of workers in the workplace. The LRA allows, under certain conditions, to extend these agreements to all workers in this workplace. The Labour Relations Act (“LRA”) divides the “union” into two categories: but there is no provision in the LRA that requires employers to recognize each union as a bargaining partner. Protected strike measures are needed. A union will successfully obtain recognition in the workplace if it can prove to the employer or the CCMA that it is sufficiently represented among the workers.

BLLR-Kopfnote-Note Collective negotiations – right of participation – Union that provides a decision that declares it entitled to bargain with the employer – the injunction was rejected because the employer can refuse to negotiate with the union without negotiation, even if the union has a common right of bargaining and the desired discharge would have no practical effect. A less combative and more informative store steward will be able to effectively defend the interests of employees without unduly compromising the viability of the business and the job security of employees. Even when workers are bound by unions, it is not always mandatory for employers to recognize business managers. This means that the employer does not always need to accept the choice of store stewards and interact with them. Before the union can legally compel the employer to recognize directors as representatives of employees, the union must first: it is therefore essential that employers be able to judge in advance whether the union concerned is sufficiently representative or not.
