Union bosses have more rights than Police to enter premises

Labour’s pay off to the unions has a measure which gives union bosses more rights than the Police:

Unions will be able to access workplaces without gaining prior consent from an employer, but will still need to come at reasonable times and not unduly interrupt business continuity.

If the Police want to enter a premises they need a warrant. Now union bosses will be able to just rock up willy-nilly.  

Make no mistake the union pay off is coming.

Employers will once again have a duty to conclude collective bargaining unless there is a “good reason” not to.

Who gets to determine “good reason”? You may be sure it won’t be the employer.

Prospective employees will be provided with information about unions in the workplace, and employers will have to pay union delegates for time spent reasonably representing other workers.

Unions already have employers collect their dues on their behalf, now they are going to have to promote the union as well. This was easy for National to have stopped but John Key lacked the courage to do so. It is appalling that the employer has to handle the collection of union dues for the union. They should have to collect their dues themselves. Payroll protection of union dues is something that should have been axed a long time ago. Now employers have to promote the very organisation that wants to damage their business.

It is actually akin to protection rackets now.

New employees will again be required to be employed under terms consistent with any collective agreement for the first 30 days of their tenure.

Next step compulsory unionism.

Ardern indicated earlier in the week that more controversial changes like “fair pay” laws would take more time.

Welcome to 1970s style national awards, whether you like them or not.

To summarise Labour’s new workplace laws give union bosses more rights than Police to enter your premises, force collective bargaining, makes the employer become part of the union PR department and brings in compulsory unionism by stealth…plus reinstitute national awards.

Essentially Labour has introduced a pay packet tax to employees, and all the payments of this “tax” go to their union paymasters.

I can’t wait for Labour to force everyone to wear cloth caps again.

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.
