Industrial democracy in South Africa's transition

Volume: Volume 1(1) - 1997

Article type: Refereed article

Author/s: Du Toit, Darcy

'Industrial democracy in South Africa's transition' by Darcy du Toit considers another paradigm shift contained in the new Act: from the traditional model of employer-employee relations towards more participative forms of management, as embodied in the provision for workplace forums. The article considers worker participation as an aspect of democratisation in accordance with the new constitutional order and examines the extent of the powers given to workplace forums.

It also views workplace forums in relation to trade unions and collective bargaining, Noting the conflicting analyses developed by leading commentators, it argues that the LRA preserves the primary role of trade unions in representing labour interests.
