Maybe he could work for the Maritime Union, Ctd

We know the Maritime Union is a blokefest, they currently have a couple of members before the employment courts for the sexist and racist attitudes.

Maybe this racist could possibly get a job with the Maritime Union:

A young Auckland man, who contributed to a racially charged online conversation, will keep his job but has learned a valuable lesson about social media.

An Australian blogger called for Auckland restaurant Urban Turban to be boycotted this week after an employee was involved in a racist tirade against Aborigines on Facebook.

Many of the online comments were aimed at a young Aboriginal girl pictured in a poster encouraging greater education for Aborigines.

Urban Turban employee Brian Castello wrote “maybe don’t live in remote aborigine communities, then your kids can read”.

A manager at the restaurant, Glenn, said he had spoken to Castello and other staff about the dangers of posting comments online that could be linked to their employer.

“I don’t think the remark merited him losing his job.

“We have had a conversation about our policies. I have made it clear to him to remove us an employer on Facebook,” he said.

Glenn, who declined to give his surname, said Castello is young and impressionable and may not have realised how his comment may be interpreted.

As an employer, he said he was reluctant to force his views on staff or censor them in their personal lives.

“But it has highlighted what is required of staff in terms of social media and public persona.”
