Are Union Bosses the 1%?

Sydney Morning Herald

Who sets the remuneration for unions bosses? This bloke earns more than your average doctor, lawyer or other highly skilled professional. Certainly more than a wharfie at Auckland.

Mr Williamson has been suspended from the HSU since October but on full pay, believed to be $350,000. Last night he said he would face down the executive of Unions NSW, saying he had been ”denied natural justice”.

This guy gets paid more than the NSW Premier who is only on $333,800 per year.

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.
