Strikes continue to fester

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Is it just me or do there actually seem to be a hell of a lot more strikes these days.

Especially as it is school holidays, I am kind of expecting the Inter-islander workers to down tools any time soon.

It seems that Labour has returned us to the bad old days of union/employer confrontation, and here was me thinking that the Employment Relations Act was supposed to bring peace and tranquility to the New Zealand workplace after the “evil” (and strikeless) Employment Contracts Act.

Silly me, apparently it was all about giving unions far more power than they really deserve, oh and of course cushy list places for unionists and ex-teachers on Labours List.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
