For you to succeed in future;
You as Union members and workers in the industry, have to understand and take note of developments in the economy, technology and international business environment.
You have to realize that the factors which influence your life can be both positive and or negative.
The key is in how you manage these factors
In short, these economic realities can be summarized as follows:-
A) On the negative side
No worker can in future rely on a guaranteed job. Globalization and international competition, together with aspects such as technology and automation will in future result in an acceleration in the reduction of the number of existing job opportunities.(This does not refer to new work opportunities, see below.)
B) On the positive side
It is a fact that despite the reduction in jobs through automation and globalization, that these processes; if managed through a future directed approach will result in the creation of thousands of new jobs. (In fact it will create many more jobs than those lost.)
At the same time by applying future directed management methods in managing your own life, union management, business and economic management, the overall quality of every union member’s live can be improved.
Not only improved but it will at the same time create new opportunities for your children and generations to come.
The benefits that can be unlocked will include:-
- Improvements in pension benefits
- New income and
- improved buying power options for members
- New education and growth prospects
- Employment security*
Employment *security in this regard refers specifically to having peace of mind that you will always be able to have employment through your skills.
The key here is your skills.
- If you are prepared to develop on an ongoing basis your skills, you will be in a position where there will always be work opportunities for you.
To better understand this and let us take a practical example, of coal miners.
- In many mining situations it is a fact that the coal resources get depleted.
- By applying future directed management, workers can be retrained for other opportunities.
- Not only can workers be retrained but through a future directed approach, new business opportunities can be established.
The benefit of such a combined process is that: –
- The worker remains employable and
- That there are employment opportunities
It requires a collaborative approach by:-
- You and
An understanding and realization and willingness to participate by you
- Union management
- Employer management and
- Economic management from a regional to national level
The proposed program is one of the most powerful development programs.
We therefore strongly recommend and urge you to make a point of obtain the necessary information, which will enable you to make an informed decision.
It is your future
- The future of your family

- The future of Nigeria and Africa.
We can succeed, you have the potential. You already have most of the skills required. You owe it to yourself, your family, your country, to become professional, to increase not only your productivity but the added value performance of your work.
