The disadvantage of having a union is that it can lead to job losses. If the unions indulge in strikes and protests with the employees for unfeasible and avoidable reasons, the employer may suspend or fire the employees. Another negative aspect of being a union member is that it may consider only the interests of its members disregarding the plight of workers from other unions and non-unionized workers.
By having workers from different backgrounds and a different mindset may trigger to disciplinary problems. The lack of discipline and implementation of it may hinder the formation of partnership, thus compromising the concept of consensus. According to Casico (2005) self-discipline, when it is committed, consistent, and dependable. will be in accordance to what was agreed upon.
When the organization provides the employees with an optimal stress free working environment they will show optimum productivity. When the opposite occurs, Corsico (2005) stated that “…stress related disability claims are the most rapidly growing form of occupational illness”. An incentive program (rewards, promotions, recognitions) that takes into consideration the employees’ input increases the motivational levels and reduces the stress levels.
