The industrial conciliation act of 1934 of the british south african company
The Industrial Conciliation Act of 1934 of the BSAC-The prime objective of the Act was to protect white workers from African competition. -The government through the act prohibited Africans from setting up a trade union. -Africans from beyond southern Rhodesia were imported to provide labour to the whites at low wages.-The act resulted in relegation of Africans to the lowest level while skilled jobs were set aside for the Europeans.-The two acts resulted in the humiliating conditions for the Africans which resulted in the rise of African Nationalism that continued more after the Second World War.-As an answer to African agitation, the government invited more white settlers giving them more large tracts of land. -The settlers also began to agitate for the formation of a federation of the three central African territories (southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland).
