Union wants all ports nationalised

If you are looking for productivity improvements the very last people you would ask for advice would be unions:

A national port strategy bringing all the country’s ports under central public ownership would allow the industry to deal with foreign-owned shipping companies from a position of strength, a union boss has said.

After MUNZ set about destroying Ports of Auckland in the interests of preserving the status quo the very last people we should listen to is unions who talk about nationalising ports. It is hugely ironic that the port with the least union involvement is also the most profitable and efficient.

Perhaps the union idea has some merit if Ports of Tauranga is allowed to implement their methodologies across all ports….somehow I think the union would oppose that violently.

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.
