Well done unions!

I think the public are growing tired of stagnant wages and removal of union rites to strike.

Labor should be a shoe in next election especially if they throw out the FWC

Bill Shorten - The Worst Opposition Leader In History


Unions go public for more pay
The ACTU has launched its largest national media campaign in a decade in a bid to overhaul the ­nation’s workplace relations laws.
THEAUSTRALIAN.COM.AU

...
Notice how lots of these feminazi types have long thin pointy heads and look like they just sucked a lemon ?

The scum unions have a new campaign up and running they are trying to build their numbers up and once again have embarked on a spending spree with members money, I suppose as usual they have their paid actors spewing their crap. All the unions are going to achieve once again is place a few more thousand out of work.

(The Australian)
The ACTU has launched its largest national media campaign in a decade in a bid to overhaul the ¬nation’s workplace relations laws.
The eight-week campaign, to run across television, online, radio and outdoor advertising, focuses on the “power balance between companies and workers,” the rising cost of living, penalty rates and changes to job security.

The union’s biggest campaign since its 2005-2007 attack against the Howard government’s WorkChoices laws, is “about changing the rules for working people so Australians have more secure jobs and fair pay rises,” secretary Sally McManus said.

“The CEOs are making billions in bonuses and our pay is barely covering the groceries and the bills,” she says.
“I just don’t know how we’re going to get by.”

An ACTU spokesman would not disclose the exact figure for the cost of the campaign, but he said “every Australian is going to see this campaign more than once”.

Federal Trade Minister Steve Ciobo yesterday blasted the campaign as “misinformation”. “They (the ACTU) need to stop this misinformation, they need to start to focus on what’s going right in this country and they need to clean up their own backyard quite frankly,” Mr Ciobo said.

Union membership in Australia is at a record low, with less than 10 per cent of workers in the private sector and about a third of the public workforce belonging to a union.

Union membership is even slimmer among younger generations, with just 7 per cent of people aged 20-24 claiming to be members of a union.

The cranium of paw old GetUpy BlackDay who parrots the red rag rubbish must be spinning by now.

The utterly corrupt unions are scared that their perilously parlous state of irrelevancy will become public knowledge with a audit of the very few members they still have.

and if YOU vote for LABOR then these irrelevant corrupt union thugs will be running Australia into the ground!!!!!




Unions are pumping up the numbers again, all this could have been killed forever had the appropriate action been taken after the RC, however a weak as water PM did nothing and now the unions are back on the march with their rampage of lies, propaganda and thuggery.

AWU resisting pressure for an external headcount of members
The Australian12:00AM March 12, 2018

...
The AWU remains Bill Shorten’s main powerbase in Labor’s right faction. Picture: AAP

The Australian Workers Union is resisting pressure for an “external audit” after vastly exaggerating membership numbers that helped boost its power and influence in Bill Shorten’s faction of the Labor Party.

The Registered Organisations Commission, set up by the Turnbull government to police union governance, recommended the external audit of AWU membership after concluding the union did not take its reporting responsibilities seriously.

According to the ROC’s analysis, big discrepancies were found in membership levels of the right-wing AWU over seven years of annual and financial-year reports that were checked.
The most inflated figures were discovered in the Queensland branch, the AWU’s largest, that was then headed by AWU boss and Labor Party “godfather” Bill Ludwig.

AWU Queensland branch numbers were artificially boosted over successive years by failing to purge up to 45 per cent of members from the branch membership accounts who were unfinancial.

Other discrepancies detected included big differences in the AWU’s national membership tally as quoted in annual and -financial-year reports just six months apart.
The ROC found it inexplicable that memberships could experience rises and falls of up to 10 per cent over such a short time. Only last month the Transport Workers Union received an unprecedented $272,000 fine from the Federal Court for falsely inflating its membership.

In doubling membership numbers by failing to eliminate non--financial members from its books over a period of years, the NSW branch of the TWU was able to significantly boost its representation on the state Labor conference floor and have a greater say in party decisions including the selection of candidates and even the choice of leader.

The TWU, led by Tony Sheldon, who was confirmed last week as NSW Labor’s No 1 Senate candidate for the next federal election, is appealing against the severity of the penalty — but the AWU is at risk of a similar fine if its comparable past reporting lapses climax with a court prosecution.

When the royal commission into union corruption investigated the AWU in 2015, part of its ¬inquiries focused on whether ¬inflated union membership numbers boosted the influence of AWU leaders in the Labor Party.

Mr Shorten, who gave ¬evidence to the commission, was the national and Victorian branch secretary of the AWU before he entered parliament in 2007, and the AWU remains his main powerbase in the ALP’s right faction.

AWU national secretary Dan Walton conceded last year to the ROC that the union had found “an error in historical membership levels” contained in six out of seven financial reports following an internal union audit.
In public correspondence with the ROC, Mr Walton said the AWU had corrected these figures and he hoped the matter was -finalised.

But the ROC disagreed. Referring to high levels of accountability expected by law, ROC deputy Chris Enright recommended an external membership audit because the regulator did not have “a sufficient level of confidence in the statutory membership reporting of the AWU”.

Mr Walton, who was not the AWU’s leader when the conceded “errors” were made, resisted the external audit by proposing -instead an “AWU modern membership project” in which the union would commission an “external consultant” to report on union practices, systems and even rules.
While standing by his lack of confidence in the AWU finding its own remedies, Mr Enright ¬appears to have agreed that the membership “project” should go ahead. The union remained on notice about the prospect of an external audit.

The AWU’s “membership project” results are due this month, but the timing of a report to the ROC and any outcome remain unclear. The Australian asked Mr Walton what stage the AWU’s “membership project” had reached, when it would be completed and which external consultant was chosen.
A spokesman for Mr Walton said the AWU did not consider it appropriate to provide “info or commentary on this at this stage”.

Publicly available records show the AWU declined to participate in a 2015 voluntary survey of all federally registered unions that was conducted by the regulatory compliance branch of the Fair Work Commission. The ROC took over the FWC’s regulatory functions last year.

It should be the right of every man to withdraw his labor.

That rule is gone.


Its been gone a long time and it was never the right thing to do. It is almost a basic human right.

The only effective way in which employees can protect their safety and protect their standards in the workplace.



And wasn't it the Labor party that brought in that law?


How does it make any difference who made the error ?
