The latest LRA amendments highlighted by Worklaw include advisory arbitration as a mechanism to resolve protracted strikes and violence during strikes: do people think this is going to be effective? How is this going to stop the violence before it occurs?
- Chillies Mfeka

The proposal for advisory arbitration will probably be used in large, high profile strikes, to try to bring an end to a long strike. That section is not for everyday use. It could be useful in forcing the parties to settle a long dispute that is destroying the economy. At least its an attempt to try something different - lets wait and see how it works before being too critical.

It wont help much - violence happens because of things happening at that time. Arbitration much later will make little difference .

Worklaw comment
When we spoke recently to the Dept of Labour, they felt the LRA and BCEA Amendments and the Minimum Wage Act would be introduced around September / October 2018.
