Strikes of Laborers in Sudan
The growth of any local economy relies on multiple factors that collectively affect the strength or weakness of that local economy. Those factors are never being addressed without emphasizing the labor’s statutory rights in accordance with the effective laws, as laborers form an integral part of any gross domestic product.
In organizing and protecting the environment of laborers, Sudan enacted laws do acknowledge and protect the formation of labor unions and their objectives, activities, and means to accomplish those objectives, and among those means, the law acknowledges the labors right to strike as an instrument for collectively and lawfully bargaining with employers; Nonetheless, the right to strike isn’t an absolute right, which unions/workers may exercise whenever they wish. Unions/workers usually tend to strike as a consequence of a labor dispute with their employers, and this is where the labor law interferes through placing an alternative mechanism to resolve such disputes without the need of laborers to commence any strikes. Accordingly, Sudan labor law restrains workers from preposterous methods of dispute resolution such as non-justified strikes.
So in cases of labor disputes, workers and employers are advised and encouraged to put the statutory alternative dispute resolution in place to avoid any business interruption knowing that the law incriminates strikes of workers/unions, whenever the aforementioned methods of dispute resolution are active. The statutory methods for dispute resolutions consist of three stages as follows; negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
