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.

    This is great as well as their ongoing strike action – it should be enough to push the pinko’s in the Auckland council and board of directors to harden up and do what needs to be done. Sack the whole sorry lot, bring in new contractors and get the Ports humming. 

    Good luck on the sorry mob if they piss off to Aussie – after years doing nothing in Auckland and getting paid for it they would cry when they start pulling real work eg work every hour you get paid for. 

    Parasites the lot of them.

    Even funnier is Presland and other assorted diddles on local boards around Auckland issuing a press release chastising POAL after which MUNZ issues notice of strike.

    I also note some of the retards at the lapblog including presland are running the line that costs are lower at Auckland than Tauranga – their retard gene really is kicking in hard.

    I found it rather amusing as
    Parlsoe commented on POA losing the millions they’d spent training the 300 workers.  Hmm $1 mill across 300 workers is ~$3,000 each – about a 10th of what they’ll save per year I’d say in the new deal.  So they could train a new workforce completely to 5 times the standard and still save money in the first year.  Keep spinning Parlsoe

    Slashing wages? Other companies perhaps, but Parsloe should only speak for the dispute in which he’s involved. PoA can hardly be said to be trying to slash wages when they’ve offered a very generous 10% increase.

    Why does the director of PORTS OF AUCKLAND earn $200.000 a year for working 2 days a week.
    He is also employed by the  WELLINGTON ELECTRICITY BOARD
    He could work 1 day a week for the POA and earn $100,000. a year and save the POA $100,000, then work some overtime for the WELLINGTON ELECTRICITY BOARD to make up for his loss.
    POA needs to look at different ways to save money, not just attack blue collar workers
