unions

Wonder woman
The Morrison Government is talking nasty about unions. Especially the Maritime Union ( err umm that's what I call it) so workers on the wharves. They want more money and Scomo calls them scurrilous names.. it is so sad.

If it weren't for Unions, we wouldn't have a country now. It would belong to some other place.

No cause more important than fair pay for work performed.
And THAT is not determined by the employer, despite what these lib creeps want you to think.

The problem though is most of the leaders of AUstralia Unions don't give a fuck about the workers, just thair own pocket and power, then they retire and become Labor politicians.....

Unions need to sign up part time and casual workers and Labor needs to go hard against zero hour contracts and other scummy ways workers are exploited. No bigger need for a Labor government has existed for a long time.

Neoliberalism by Libs, Nats, Greens is killing the economy.

Not the Wharves again. :groan

And the same multi-national as last time. This government is so useless.........They must think people don't remember.

Young folk might not have a clue, but us older folk have seen all this bogus action by LIB govts before.

I really WISH they'd start living in the 21st century.

Nah mate, no need to be like that.

Remember we are all in this together... because that s a hell of a lot more than our govt pollies believe, They can't even be bothered to be across their jobs...

And the looniess FFS. You think Michaelia Cash , or whatever her name is, is FIT to hold a senior position in govt..? or That Aged Care Minister who had NO CLUE.. what does he do, by the way..?? Or the Comms Minster Fletcher..? seriously.

Apart from take taxpayer money in payment.?
That 's not even mention the wasted space that is Frydenberg, Corman and the PM. What a bunch of losers.

It's gotten to the point NOW, when just hearing their voices is enough to make me feel disgusted.

What a place we have become. Shame Australia

For Unions to become relevant to most of the work force again they need to completely root out the scumbags running them and do a LOT of work with transparency and accountability....It's not the union that's the problem it's the leadership....

labor can vote how they like, it's irrelevant ... they don't have a majority vote. Pay rises will still go through.

ohh please ... you won't find a single organisation of the size of most unions that hasn't also got bad apples in them. Unions on the whole do a good job. It's just the libs and murdicks constant attempts at smearing unions that you're swallowing hook line and sinker.

Personal experience working on big construction sites and just about every Tradie I've meet, even die hard unionists I've meet say exactly the same thing.... Not falling for anything....
I don't think I've read anything the libs have to say about it to be truthful...

Ohh cool then you can show us the links when Labor have been in power either in a federal or state level where they have abstained or voted for less benefits and a pay cut
Or even as opposition, opposed a pay raise or to abolish benefits :ROFL1 :ROFL1
