Cullen flips the bird at the Unions

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Despite millions of dollars of support for the Labour Party at the last election the Unions have emerged from a meeting with Cullen empty-handed.

Engineers Union national secretary Andrew Little and Aviation and Marine Engineers Association general secretary George Ryde at the Beehive yesterday trying to save 600 jobs at government owned Air New Zealand.

Cullen essentially flipped them the bird.

Dr Cullen’s spokeswoman said that as a shareholder the Government would not intervene in the operational decisions of the company.

At least Cullen made the right call on this one, now he should sell down the Government stake to the highest bidder.

Later on NewstalkZB he said;

“We are not in the position to start subsidising jobs”.

It is not often you will find me agreeing with Cullen, but wonders never cease.
