POAL making its move

The Ports of Auckland is making it’s move against the union and from their latest hire things aren’t looking too promising for the union:

Ports of Auckland is employing Jon Mayson, the former Port of Tauranga chief executive who helped set up more flexible labour relations at Port of Tauranga, as a consultant.

Ports of Auckland told BusinessDesk Mr Mayson is assisting with its plan to contract out labour.

Ports of Auckland has requests for proposal out with potential new labour suppliers which are due back by the end of the month. The port expects to make a decision in principle about whether or not to outsource labour in early February.

Mr Mayson was chief executive of Port of Tauranga from 1997 to 2005 and knows the background of labour relations in New Zealand’s ports better than most.

He was assistant operations manager at Port of Tauranga and was seconded to a group that drove through reform of that port’s labour relations in 1990.

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.
