The days of NZ unions fighting for the workers are long gone. There primary role is to fight the National Party when in Government and to not rock the boat when their is a Labour government. The reward goes not to the workers but to the union leaders who are guaranteed list seats or safe seats for their efforts. Those efforts solely on behalf of the Labour party, not the workers they represent. The sooner National and union members wake up to this then the [sooner] we will see the end on militant unions.
