THE UNION REPORT 23 April 2012: The Union Report: Guests are Helen Kelly and Garry Parsloe. Topics are Issue 1: What is driving the conflict at the Ports of Auckland, where is the middle ground and how many dirty tricks does PoAL need to play? Issue 2: AFFCO says they want the Union out of their industry, will these tactics enshrine a low wage economy and if our primary industries can’t provide decent wages, what industry can? Issue 3: This Saturday is International Worker’s memorial Day and 6 months since the death of Charanpreet Dhaliwal on a Fulton Hogan worksite. Is a de-unionized workforce a safe workforce?
