This is what the Ports dispute is all about. Ports of Auckland is lagging a long, long way behind the Port of Tauranga in the areas that matter.

So far the Maritime Union has failed to explain how demands for more will assist in clawing back the difference in productivity between the two poerts.

There is no way that Auckland can rise to meet the level of Tauranga unless fundamental changes are made, and they recognise that they must be made.

Sadly the Union does not want to see those changes made, and therefore the customers have walked. They will continue to walk.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
