With the strike action underway down at the Ports of Auckland some interesting information has come in via the tipline.

Apparently a golfing trip was undertaken by MUNZ officials this week while their members were trying to figure out how to work through the partial strike Parsloe and co had ordered.

But its also turns out that MUNZ leaders will not be showing solidarity with their port brothers and sisters when the full strike kicks in on the 24th.  No….Parsloe and co will instead be sunning themselves, troughing it up and drinking the bar dry on a conference junket in Australia on 28 February.

Now we know why the Labour party has been asked to kick in some support for the strike. It is to cover for their absentee overlords in the union.

Back in the old days it is a matter of union legend that Bill Anderson used to stop his own union salary whenever his members were on strike.

Not so Gary Parsloe and co of the Maritime Union – not only are they getting paid – but they’re tripping off to Australia on a junket while the Caropotamus and Helen “Hobbit Hater” Kelly run the picket line at Ports of Auckland. The blokes are handing control to the wimmin…with Caropotamus becoming the fifth woman on the wharf. No doubt the fourth woman, Darien, will be mustering the hordes of angry Labour party children and handing out placards for them all to use.

If I were a worker, now facing two weeks with no pay because of the strikes,  I’d feel a bit grumpy if I found out about that. Certainly someone inside MUNZ isn’t happy at all.
