Case A (99/34C), set in late 1998, traces the development of HAECO's Works Consultative Committee (WCC) and the factors that contributed to its smooth development, making it a demonstration case to illustrate the potential of staff-management consultation as a tool for effective management. Case B, set in December 1999, tells of the development in HAECO as a result of an announcement by the management of HAECO for the implementation of new pay rules, which effectively and significantly reduced the take-home pay of most employees. A major point in case B was that a large number of employees were dissatisfied with the new arrangement even though the new pay rules had the consent of the WCC. As a result, they established a trade union to represent their views. These cases shows the effectiveness or otherwise of staff-management consultation during different economic climates.
