Meet the Wharfies – Carl Findlay

The media keep on putting up Maritime Union strikers without checking their backgrounds.Last night on One News they used Carl Findlay to tell us all about skills and safety, I suppose it is a blessing they didn’t use Andrew Angus.

This is Carl Findlay:

Last night on TV One they had a story about the new contractors and TV One used a quote from Carl Findlay. You should know a bit about Carl Findlay.

He is a MUNZ Executive member and its national vice-president. He was given a final written warning in February this year (not the first time either) for taking company property and interfering in a company investigation. He was caught using a ruler to retrieve an envelope from under his manager’s locked door. The envelope was addressed to the manager. It contained a statement from another employee about an internal investigation into the leaking to MUNZ of confidential company information.

He is currently suing the port as his response to the final warning.

I saw Carl Findlay on TV last night. Your readers need to know about him. In 2010 he threatened my mate and his family at work with violence and as a result recieved a final written warning for serious mis-conduct.

I can’t believe that the news people don’t check these bullies and thugs out. So glad you came down to the wharf to find out the true story.

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.
