The Co-worker (Ahmed ) was against what the store-keeper (bashair) was saying, the union leader (najma) was trying to defend the store-keeper (bashair) by her saying that the co-worker (Ahmed) is here just to help the foreman ( Kalfan) so that he could be promoted to a higher level, the manager (Salim) felt that the union leader (najma) offended him by her being rude and trying to show that she had more power in this situation, the manager worn the union leader to watch what she is saying because he felt offended by her showing that she has more power than him.

The foreman (Khalfan) didn't give the store-keeper (Bashair) a chance to explain her situation while he was just shouting at her. Consequences of conflict Unresolved conflict often leads to an atmosphere of hostility, irritability and rudeness, and is a major cause of escalating stress in the workplace environment.
