Ports of Auckland loses Fonterra

The Maritime Union has announced another strike for January 9 and The Ports of Auckland has lost Fonterra as a customer:

Ports of Auckland has lost its contract with the country’s largest exporter, Fonterra.

The move will see weekly trade worth around $27 million re-routed through the ports of Tauranga and Napier.

Ports of Auckland Chief Executive Tony Gibson says the threat of ongoing industrial action means it’s inevitable customers will look for alternatives and contingencies.

Tony Gibson says he’s today advised the union that the port’s latest – and ninth – offer is its best and final one.

The next strike action is planned for a 48 hour period from Monday morning.

The union is destroying the Port, it must be taken on and busted. They are no longer protecting jobs they are now actively destroying jobs.

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. 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.
