CHALLENGES OF SOCIAL DUMPING IN SOUTH AFRICA AND PROPOSED STRATEGIES FOR UNIONS (Presented at the 3F International Solidarity Conference in Denmark in October 2010) 1. INTRODUCTION The concept, ‘social dumping’, seems relatively new in the discourse of the international trade union movement but has a lot to do with the rise of globalization in the world. In South Africa, we came to find ourselves faced with this concept following the democratization of the country at the end of legislated Apartheid system and the first democratic elections. As it will be shown, there are certain involuntary factors at play in addition to deliberate policy decisions to integrate to globalization. Because the trade union movement finds itself negatively affected by social dumping, it had to begin thinking about doing something and some proposals are thrown into what could constitute strategies to combat this scourge. 2. SOUTH AFRICAN SITUATION & BASIC ANALYSIS Conceptually, social dumping occurs when a country opens its borders to allow a movement of labour from ‘low-cost labour’ countries into its well regulated labour market on the one hand. 1
