Having actively cooperated with the Key Government while it has implemented its austerity measures and in the process turfed thousands of workers on to the unemployment scrapheap, the self-serving union fat cats are now asking workers to demonstrate against the Key Government.
The demonstration is planned for Sunday at the National Party conference in Auckland.
While it has done absolutely nothing to resist this Government's anti-worker offensive, the CTU bureaucrats now wants workers to demonstrate at the National party conference against the expansion of the 90 day free to fire legislation to the entire workforce.
The hypocrisy is staggering. The venal and corrupt politics of the union bureaucracy are now laid bare for all to see.
The CTU and the PSA have not - and will not - raise a finger to fight this government but, boy, its an entirely different story when the union bureaucrats think their interests are under threat.
And did CTU President Helen Kelly and her cronies put up any resistance when the original 90 day bill was introduced? No, they didn't. They were quite prepared to sacrifice the smaller non-union workplaces in the hope that the Government would not try to storm their little kingdom's.
And having done eveything in their power to suppress any kind worker fightback, does the CTU they really think people are just going to obediently obey their commands to demonstrate on Sunday? I think many union members will be thinking; 'Yeah well, what have you done for me lately?'
As we know too well from recent history, there has been no bottom line as far as the likes of Helen Kelly and Andrew Little have been concerned. They have sold out workers time and time again.
The expansion of the 90 day fire at will legislation will be another step in the direction of bedding in the low wage economy combined with a vulnerable and complaint workforce. And the CTU and the PSA have allowed this to happen.
Now the bastards want our help?
