June 20, 2016 (SSB) — Many organizations and institutions have been set up and still are, for time immemorial with rules, visions, and missions. Many thinks they are the rules that are fulfilled, visions followed and aims satisfied but the main driving force behind the accomplishment of the above are the general characteristics of the human decision-making to satisfy the said institution

lecturers on strike in South Sudan

June 20, 2016 (SSB) — The lecturers have downed their tools and the health workers stopped work on many occasions since 2005. Of course these are low key strikes which serve as tip of iceberg about nature of labour in the whole country.

The wider workforce, particularly the public sector workers helplessly lay dormant not because they had no industrial grievances against the employer, the government of South (GSS) but because they have not shaken off the intrinsic fear about the ruling junta in SPLM/SPLA.

The industrial unrest saw uniformed men; the ones we are afraid of involved in strike to settle claims on the streets by shooting in the air.
