Term:STRIKE ACTION

Strike action is a major factor in labour-intensive industries in South Africa – like the mining industry and the metals industry. The labour legislation in this country is skewed heavily in favour of employees and against employers so that the cost of labour rises much more quickly than the inflation rate. When you are looking at a share you should always try to assess how vulnerable it is to strike action.
