As a trade union Educator, I used to train shop stewards and union leaders on how to represent union members in disciplinary hearings and in arbitrations. I also represented union members in arbitrations. Am also a former union General Secretary and now General Secretary of Transnet Bargaining Council. I see mediation as the most appropriate way of resolving conflicts. Courts must be the ADR actually. I intend to contribute in making mediation the popular and preferable dispute resolution method.
