Update on Union Financial Returns – Observation by the Owl

Well MUNZ seem to be still on summer holiday as they have only filed their revised accounts up to 2009. I could appreciate a small delay on not filing the 2010 and 2011 updated accounts but he only problem is that they have missed the deadline on filing their 2012 accounts.

The Incorporated Societies Registrar has received the full financial accounts from EPMU but have yet to upload on the website. 

This take five minutes but we understand the Registrar is reviewing them in-depth. Could be interesting.

Finally the Owl always acknowledge good work by Unions and today we have one. The FIRST Union in the NZ Herald said they represent approximately 27,000 members. A quick look at the official Department of Labour membership returns show they had 26,241. Isn’t it great to read facts which are true.

“there is no upside in lying” – well done FIRST Union for being the first union to actually state the facts in 2013.

Unions folks like a good sing along, here is Pete Seegar’s union song “Which Side Are You On?”, covered by pommy lefty screamer Billy Bragg

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.
