It’s all about Casualisation…oh wait!

Cactus Kate is really doing a sterling job of busting the unions myths and today she has probably got the killer blow for their arguments about casualisation:

The problem with MUNZ’s, Fenton’s and the left’s argument about casualisation is that right now MUNZ is pursuing a case against POAL in the Employment Court to prevent the Port offering permanent jobs to “lashers”.

This is not a joke. They are AGAINST casuals getting permanent jobs. The POAL has proceeded to employ on a permanent basis.

Hang on some may say, is the Union not bravely leading the struggle against “casualisation” along with Third Woman on the Wharf, Helen “Clean Up” Kelly and the left?

You may think so, but not when the Union bullies (mainly old, white crusty’s like the charming couple we met yesterday on this blog) have the top jobs and like to take the overtime at their much higher rates rather than allow the lower paid workers to get permanent jobs.

See – it is never quite that straightforward with Union bullies is it Darien? Best you stay out of it then and go back to watching the Mad Butcher specials for some weekend shopping.

There is a reason that David Shearer is in charge. He’s actually thought about this, spoke with all sides and decided to stay out of it.

So let me get this straight…the union, a bunch of blokes who hate women working on the wharf are against casualisation in public but on the down-lo have a court case against the Ports of Auckland attempting to prevent the employer from making jobs that they like permanent because under current terms and conditions they are creaming it by the job being casual.

I think we can safely say the union has really over-stepped the mark now. Nothing they ever say can now be believed.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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