It's time to sack Tony Gibson for crimes against the economy
Maritime Union - 2
Bad luck Tony Gibson. Despite the black ops campaign Slater and Odgers seem to have run for PoA. Despite the mud slinging from far right Christian radio. Despite the anti-Union hysteria generated by the mainstream media. Despite Len Brown becoming a scab mayor. Despite the claims it was militant unionists when it was militant bosses. Despite the disgusting way a wharfie had the terminal illness of his wife revealed. Despite the murky behind the scenes machinations of Council Controlled Organisations picked by Rodney Hide for privatization purposes. Despite saying that there was no way the workers could gain back their jobs. Despite this entire farce being a manufactured crisis from day one.
Despite all of that.
The employment court has for the second time slapped down the PoA bad faith bargaining campaign in a decision that would make even the most hysterical anti union yob pause mid spittle and admit the tactics to date have had nothing to do with productivity and everything to do with ideology.
This war represents the attempt by big business to stamp the low wage economy all over workers faces, and there can be no fence sitting. If destroying working class job security and just terms of employment are really the future of NZ, then we have no future.
It is time for this right wing joy ride to end, Tony Gibson is threatening the entire NZ economy by destroying the PoA, it is time he was arrested for crimes against the economy.
