How do you explain someone actions and how do you explain your own actions? If you give it some thought you might acknowledge that how you explain them are very different. For example, someone is late to work because they are lazy or because something happened on the way to work? How you understand your and others actions will alter how people are perceived.
In Norway there are now thousands of people in the public sector on strike and the parts involved are miles apart. The power of unions in Norway are very strong so they have decided to take people out of work to faster reach an agreement. This is how the Norwegian model work, power is equal. A question came to me when hearing about this, does unions actually improve work in terms of organizational performance and employment practices?
