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.
