With you on that ozzieeagle. Of course you would have to be naïve on the extreme to expect unions to be snow white, church going mice. Not sure why cresta57 drags out the same one sided anti union bias in order to stress a point.
The fact is in Australia the balance has been over turned and gone far to far towards corporate interests and needs readdressing.


Business and government can in no way be assured to remotely have the interests of the working man, a term used very loosely, as these days can mean a white collar academically educated professional.


It is not the class war of old, but justice and fair play in a world increasingly becoming lop sided due to too much power in the hands of ever fewer.


Trying to work out how a fair days work come's with the exploitation piece from above poster.


Today's work place is more about overwork, being exploited, short term contracts and p..s poor bods in positions with psychopathic profile tendencies.


Unions very much needed to ensure the law is followed .....my experience is that they also act as a letting off steam process for workers who wouldn't act at all untowardly in their normal day to day working life.


There is a lot of frustration out there at working practices .......fear never a good way to run a business/team....

This is how we deal with greedy unions in NSW. Still amazed they agreed to anything at all. Read to last line. Of course they didn't comment.

NSW also accounted for half of Australia's growth easily eclipsing Victoria stiffled by unions.

And of course all that translates into nice and consistant job numbers in NSW which gives workers options and the power over employees, again easily eclipsing Victoria.

..... and if NSW were a country, it would rank somewhere in the 20's for global GDP numbers.

Bless the unions ..... especially Victorian ones.

Your right of course. Bless them indeed.Without The Unions, not that they are without blemish, but the numbers that would be flacked without some representation in an age of ever increasing corporate and management thuggery would be enormous both in terms of health and profitability.
