Looking through the Meatworkers Union accounts?

Yesterday I wrote about the missing money from the Meatworkers and the apparent hiding of significant amounts of members money through a complicated arrangement with branches. No answer yet as to where all the money is but it appears to be well hidden in the branches.

Riddle me this though…Are the Meatworkers Union seriously telling us all that their President does all that he does for just $4000 per annum?

That is less than the $13,800 paid to the Labour party in “Affilation Fees” and half as much as paid to the IUF…essentially exporting Kiwi money to international unionists.

Another intersting part is Loss/(Profit) on Disposal of Fixed Assets of $553…not a lot of money…but when the union claims a 14 year old IBM laptop (bought in 1998) as an asset worth $3708 then you really do realise that there is something whiffy in their accounts.

They paid just 11% tax on their profit. It appears that their Net Taxable Income is actually interest on deposits. In 2010 they actually got a refund because their RWT basically over paid their tax liability. (Note 2 in the accounts)

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.
