It came out in the Cambridge O Level Exam for November. I was clueless of what it was! Anybody got an answer for Electronic Scabbing?
The question was about change of a traditional office to an electronic office.
:woot: :blink: :wacko:

Bleh! All I could come up as a wild guess was stealing information through the use of keyloggers... Which I really doubt is right anyway :sad:

Creating a scab over a wound by means of electronic induction?

Other than that, it could mean to block access, slowly, to secretive information.

this came off of google:
the process of electronic scabbing which allows managers to switch wordprocessing duties from striking clerks in one country to nonstrikers in another; the ability of unions to maximise impact by selecting computing staff for strike action; the benefits to unions and to management of "new technology" agreements leading to greater productivity and better working conditions.

:huh:
