The real reason Labour is afraid of Bridges bill

David-Cleaner-Labour-RedI’ve posted before about businesses pushing to have this Part 6A repealed. With 52 days to go until David Shearer gets the heave-ho, it made me wonder what he’d do after being knifed in the back by his “supportive colleagues”.

See Labour and their union mates’ just love the vulnerable employee section of the Employment Relations Act.

If for example, Shearer gets the boot, and ends up as a Parliamentary cleaner working in Labour’s offices at night, I’m sure Grant Robinson or Andrew Little would be tickled pink. I reckon they’d want to see the back of him once and for all.

But here’s the rub, thanks to Labour’s keenness on keeping Part 6A, even if they pushed Parliamentary Services for a new cleaning company, Shearer could ‘elect to transfer’ to the incoming cleaning company and low and behold would be back in their offices again the next day, rummaging through their desks looking for incriminating documents to leak to WhaleOil.

On this basis alone, Labour should be gunning for a repeal of Part 6A as much as possible.
