The Maritime Union blokes couldn’t handle the jandal and have had to enlist the support fot he chicks in the form of Helen Kelly. It seems though that their normal confused transmission has resumed despite the involvement of the Hobbit Hater.

Many port workers will leave the country to seek work offshore if their jobs are contracted out as proposed by the Ports of Auckland, the Maritime Union warns.

Union president Garry Parsloe says port workers are telling him they’ll go somewhere where they can get a better deal – like Australia.

“Who can blame them?” he says, adding that the “enormous investment” made in training a skilled workforce will be wasted if workers leave the port. The port pays for port workers to be trained.

Don’t let the door hit you in the arse on the way out. See ya fellas.

Mr Parsloe says there is a serious issue in New Zealand with employers attempting to boost profits by slashing wages and conditions of employment, adding that the Ports of Auckland dispute was a classic example of this trend.

No Mr Parsloe, what is a serious issue is a union stopping a company seeking to re-dress the imbalance that sees workers getting paid for 43 hours work and the workers hardly breaking a sweat doing only 28 hours work for that 43 hours pay.

The union is getting increasingly shrill as they continue to orchestrate and escalate the dispute. It is apity that every single time they ahve claimed something it has proven to be demonstrably false.

Times up on Parlsoe and his rich prick, sexist wharf mates.
