Loane Sharp, labour economist for Adcorp, said the sector will see "South Africa's next labour relations crisis" and that the civil service "is on the brink of collapse".
"A large part of the impending collapse must be laid at the door of the public sector union, Cosatu, which has refused to allow public servants' wage increases to be pegged to productivity levels," said Sharp. Performance agreements The union has also "refused to allow its members to enter into performance agreements with their employer, the state", he said. Due to issues such as nepotism and nonpayment of salaries, "civil servants have many grievances". The recent attempt by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to rein in public spending was one of several existing factors that could combine to "spark a wave of strikes and violence throughout the public sector", said Sharp.

Loane Sharp, chief analyst at Adcorp Holdings, said the strong growth was likely to continue as the economy ramped up for the year-end retail season.
"Professional and clerical employment grew three percent with 17 000 jobs during the month, while low-skilled employment fell by 1.3%, equating to 6 000 jobs," said Sharp. He said the recent 2011 population census results still did not provide clear answers on the size and economic significance of the informal sector. "According to the 2011 census, informal sector employment amounts to 1.61-million - 27.2% lower than the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS). He said the census had cast doubt over the QLFS as well. "Adcorp's latest estimate for October 2012 suggests that there are 6.4-million people employed, in the sense of being routinely economically active in the informal sector, representing 32.9% of total employment in South Africa," Sharp said.

Loane Sharp, labour economist at Adcorp, said the most significant fault lies in the failure of labour relations mechanisms, such as the bargaining councils, the CCMA and the Labour Court, to provide the conciliation and mediation they were designed to.
Sharp said unions use two strategies to get new members or retain existing members.
