Here I go needlessly puting my backside at risk again saying it like it is does that.
But this trade union movement and its acheavements is more important than any of us!
On a visit to a big construction site[ it could have been any one of twenty] the youngs view of unionism was exposed, by a handfull.
The combined copys of selected workers online pages along with ACTU storeys on the miners plee to parlement and the shamefull admition that overtime and a whole list had been traded away hit the tables.
Not union produced, to far away from the ofice for that it was one union activists output, more union rubbish! we donnt need unions! our boss is our mate!
rubbish, if we wipe out the past wages would be half of what they are.
If we fail to fight good boss, and some exist, will find shonky brothers comes to town!
No fair pay and cheaper jobs! will good boss go broke? or take on this shonk by being one?
If its not time now for ALL UNIONS to UNITE and stop fighting one another, it never will be!
I have seen casuals once paid $24 plus an hour now paid $17.15! and schooled to fear unions and union oficials!
In the week of action, in every day of every week fight this goverment and workchoices.
Have you ,yes each of you written a letter to every minister? then to your church? to Labor?
Has your wife written to the paper? rang the TV?
Have your children?
See its not hard to be an activist, but its far too easy to do nothing!
ps give the grog up for one day of one weekend while we have them and go to a meeting, please?
oh ok I will have one with you be there.
