My blog on Labour Brokers produced a number of responses pointing out the benefits the TES (temporary employment service) provided – particularly flexibility. For short term needs, especially for smaller companies, a TES meets that need and does provide the opportunity for the “temp” to make show their value and obtain permanent employment. There will always be a need for “temp” staff – but are they the only solution?

There are other forms of flexibility.

In Tom Wolfe’s novel The Bonfire of the Vanities he outlines the greed and excess of Wall St in the 1980s. Financial players were making huge amounts of money and felt no responsibility for their actions. The movie Wall Street saw Michael Douglas immortalise the phrase ‘greed is good’!

The excess of the few has continued in more recent times, even as members of the public who are working for a reasonable wage are suffering under high prices, high interest rates, high fuel prices, and more.

For the second time Setas are required to apply for re-establishment. Given the frequent media reports on under-performing Setas, it’s worth asking some questions this time around, about who is making the decisions on which Setas should be re-established – or amalgamated - and on what criteria.

If Setas were to make the decisions, they might want to vote off the strongest link to avoid undue competition, alternatively they could vote off the Setas that are a constant source of embarrassment to them – a criticism of one is often expanded to a criticism of all.

This week in the Cosatu News, Fawu reported that : “A shop steward and employee of the Rainbow Chickens plant in Worcester, Zolani Newu, was suspended on Wednesday 4 March 2009 after wearing an ANC t-shirt to work.” (Dominique Swartz, FAWU media office, 6 March 2009)

Now it’s important to note that this is a food establishment – all employees are required to wear protective clothing in compliance with food safety regulations. So the clothing worn “to work” will be placed in a locker until going home time.
