The recent amendments to the Labour Relations Act, 1995 (the LRA) have made recruiting and organising members an easier process for trade unions.
Prior to the amendments, organisational rights could only be enjoyed by registered trade unions that were representative of the workforce. "Representative", in respect of minority rights, has been interpreted to mean about 30% of employees at a workplace. "Representative", in respect of majority rights, means a majority trade union, or two or more registered trade unions that, acting together, represent the majority of employees in a workplace.
