While you were sleeping, Unions turn nasty

While most were enjoying their weekend a small battle raged on Twitter between the Part6A campaigners and the dodgy scumbag union rep Neale Jones (who is also thought to be one of the paid lap-bloggers at The Standard)

Neale Jones was attacking the campaigners pushing Simon Bridges for a repeal of Part6A of his Employment Relations Amendment Bill. Clearly the unions don’t want a change.

It was an amusing exchange. Here’s some of the exchange that can be found on Twitter…





Really Neale “Union accounts are public and transparent”?  Regular readers of this blog know that union accounts are far from ok, including the EPMU which still has not satisfactorily answered what happened to more than $6 million. Clearly those Part6A campaigners had a laugh at that line, and responded with this tweet.


Neale kept on banging on, clearly pursuing the typical union tactic of attacking employers (the ones that actually pay employees that are then tucked by union scum for membership fees).



Next into the fray was Labour MP Darien Fenton. If you don’t know who she is, well that’s understandable, but she did call for the sacking of Shearer way back in March 2012. But, back to the story.

The Part 6A campaigners then fired off a tweet to Darien Fenton, no doubt because she is on the Transport and Industrial Relations Select Committee that will be hearing submissions on Simon Bridge’s Bill.



Part6A responded, fair enough too, by saying:



Like rust, unions never stop their attacks on employers and believe that anyone or any group that doesn’t see their way of thinking must be part of a secret National Party organisation. Who’s that you ask? …


So, the EPMUs’ Communications Director Neale Jones has successfully spent the weekend attacking the $30 billion a year franchise sector and NZ’s Hospitality sector to boot, plus the Young Nats.

It’s no wonder unions are a dying breed as members wise up to the dodgy practices of their so-called union reps.
