McCarten calls for heads

Herald on Sunday

Matt McCarten has called for the ehads of organisations that make big losses:

But the ultimate poke in the eye is not far away, with Auckland Port on the verge of formally giving up on its campaign to contract the jobs of their wharfies. After endless posturing, thousands of dollars in lost wages for each of their employees, tens of millions of dollars in lost business and additional costs to clients, I think the port’s managers should take a leaf out of their counterparts at ACC and resign – if it pans out as I expect.

That is a grand suggestion of Matt McCarten and if that is his benchmark I look forward to him calling for the heads of the CTU, EPMU, Unite and PPTA unions…all of which have made big losses, in the millions, of members money.

Fat chance we will see the same accountability for Helen Kelly, Andrew Little, Matt McCarten and Kate Gainsford that is demanded of the managers and board of the Ports of Auckland.

    Yep – own goal there – and well deserved too!
    Just as “clever” as Shearer commenting on the AG investigating the possible Sky City Conventin centre process “It’s obviously dodgy if the AG is investigating” So is that why Shearer asked the AG to investigate Jones then?

  • johnbronkhorst

    and when the AG finds that jones is a corrupt, peverted and dishonest guy. But finds that the sky city deal was just a clever and insightful method of doing business that will benefit Auckland and the NZ tourist industry, creating jobs and income…AT NO COST to the NZ taxpayer!…What will shearer be saying then??? As for mccarten…he is such an idiot and only worthy of being ignored!!!

    If you gus read the crap written by uncle Matt – you have too much time on hand. Please go and protest against the asset sales and collect signatures for Sheep Shearer.

  • Richard McGrath

    I have asked Matt whether the union leaders should resign on the Herald comments page. Awaiting response!

  • MrV

    What about people who fraudulently take PAYE tax from members then fail to pay it to the IRD? I wonder what Matt thinks of those people.

      Assume you mean the unions here!!???
