Port Report

Yesterday the Ports of Auckland’s non-union permanent stevedoring staff finished discharging cargo from the Maersk Aberdeen before schedule.

This morning the Ports of Auckland are processing Irene’s Remedy at Fergusson terminal. Irene’s Remedy will discharge over 1000 (containers) TEU at the terminal. Irene’s Remedy is around 2900 (containers) TEU.

Two ships in two days, when Garry Parsloe said that not a single ship would be serviced. The strike is broken and so is the union.

via the tipline:

MUNZ are interfering with Wallace Investments trying to stop their MUNZ members from working with non-union staff on Fergusson Terminal. Yesterday’s Maersk Aberdeen was worked with a mix of non-union port staff and casual workers as well as Wallace stevedores.

Today at Fergusson they’re working the Irene’s Remedy and MUNZ are trying to force all MUNZ Wallace stevedores to stay off Fergusson to cripple the port and have the vessel stranded at sea with no NZ port to sail into.

Also yesterday non-union staff, single liftting the Aberdeen achieved 27 moves an hour – Farrrrkin Awesome!

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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