CONFLICTS BETWEEN STAKEHOLDERS IN THE WORKPLACE Conflicts between stakeholders in the workplace bring about many impacts on society such as newimproved laws and legislation regarding different aspects of the workplace and price wars During the industrial revolution there werent laws protecting the workers rights in regards to injury compensation wages or work conditions In the 1850s the Trade Union movement began in Australia and is continued today through the Labour Party Unions are a mainly involved in conflicts between stakeholders as they push for higher wages better working conditions which includes providing a disability-friendly workplace health cover etc examples of union movements include the ongoing teacher strikes for higher wages An example of this is the recent decision to rule in favour of casual teachers in a pay discrimination case There are around 28000 casual teachers in New South Wales who have been exploited for many years by successive governments They have been performing the same work as permanent teachers and yet receiving in some cases up to 10000 per annum less pay The Teachers Federation funded the case for thirteen women The case was first lodged in 1995 During the hearings the thirteen women were subject to intensive cross-examination in a case which the Department of School Education fought most bitterly Repeatedly governments have failed to recognise and address the issue of pay equity In the last salaries negotiations the Government was simply not prepared to fund casual teachers salaries consistent with their own pay equity policy The hearings concluded in August 1999 and it took more than a year for the tribunal to bring down its decision Unfortunately during this period schools were engaged in protracted industrial turmoil over teacher salaries including pay equity for casual teachers Indeed the final teachers salary strike in May 2000 was an attempt to get the Government to address the issue of casual teachers pay This had a major impact on society
