Gillard mans up to union scum, has bigger balls than John Key

Julia Gillard is prepared to take on the unions, something John key hasn’t yet been prepared to do with his previous Labour minister being in the thrall of them.

Simon Bridges is yet to say or do anything, here’s hoping they find some courage from what Gillard is doing:

Union officials face limits on the number of visits they can make to factories and worksites under the latest changes by the Gillard government to the Fair Work Act.

Big employers, such as BHP Billiton, have complained that unions have been abusing right-of-entry rules and in some cases have made hundreds of visits to their sites. 

It is believed that under the proposed changes the Fair Work Commission will be able to decide if there have been too many visits.

Workplace relations minister Bill Shorten hosted a meeting with employer groups and unions on Thursday to discuss the new proposals along with the government’s already flagged changes around work and life balance.

Those are major changes signalled by a Labor Prime Minister but pathetic in the greater context.

Three simple things need to be done in New Zealand.

  1. Only natural persons can belong to political parties
  2. Only natural persons can donate to political parties
  3. Remove payroll protection for union dues and make the unions collect their own subs.

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.
