Getting the labor force around
It is accepted that good labor-management relations are crucial to good human resources management. Consultation, through communication and continued dialogue between management and labor agents, can contribute to the augmentation of the relationships between the parties. It is important that the senior officials of both management and labor agents be devoted to continuously enhancing and improving the process. Consultation is essential in building relationships; it is a continuing process not limited to official meetings between the parties.
Implementing effective labor-management committees necessitates a culture change for the parties involved. Nonetheless, the development of relationships based on trust and mutual respect and the sharing of information and views proves advantageous to both parties. To be effective, the process must be based on an honest and open commitment, by both parties, to the sharing of information and to listening to each other’s opinions, observations, and recommendations, prior to decisions being taken. This allows each party to understand the full implications of decisions and actions on their legitimate interests.
