ANGRY OUTBURST LEAVES NO DOUBT.


Stuff reports from Dunedin an ex EPMU official standing outside the closure bound Cadbury factory with a skinhead prospect and a person masquerading as a 'bag lady', making a passionate speech in which the ex union functionary demonstrates his total lack of busines nous.

The shouty little guy claimed that the closure of the Cadbury factory with the loss of 362 jobs was Nationals fault and based entirely on "GREED".
Management at Mondelez,  offshore based owners of the now seriously tarnished, once iconic chocolate brand will be  glad to be removing themselves from such ignorance based ranting. That sort of rubbish is never going to influence anyone and certainly not hard headed business leaders.
The shouty little guy might have had another agenda, possibly something aligned to his future  in his other job but as somehow being of any value as advocacy for workers facing winter in a job  queue, it would have to be a fail.

I know an educated man might get shouty and make a mistake in the heat of the moment but a few facts were obviously being ignored, by this guy who is rumoured to have another better paying job, but reverted to full union retard mode as he made meaningless statements that will do zilch for the people now facing redundancy.

FYI Mr union bloke, simply stated, shareholders invest in companies to get a return on their money, management make decisions to protect shareholders funds and make profits to pay dividends and reinvest to grow the enterprise.
Carting sugar, cocoa beans and ingredients to a small town deep in southern waters then transport almost all the blended product  back over seas would only work out if the workers were paid very low wages and the costs of production were so low as to overcome the major transport costs.
Now Mr shouty Union Knob who supported the mine management right up until the whole thing blew up killing 29 men at Pike  River, your expertise was already in the toilet just waiting for someone to flush it, so get some education on busines studies before embarking on such a revealing ego trip to demonstrate ignorance.

Fuck the shareholders and the horses they rode in on. Having made NZ Cadbury's as shitty as Australian chocolate, these fuckwits now have no reason to hold onto the NZ factory as most of their business is in Australia, so are closing a profitable factory and putting 300+ people out of a job. If we had a competent government, the Australian retards responsible for this would be getting a message right now that would make them shit their pants. Unfortunately, competence has never been a feature of the current government.

Now Mr shouty Union Knob who supported the mine management right up until the whole thing blew up killing 29 men at Pike River...

Mining companies kill miners, unions merely try to prevent them doing it, with greater or lesser success. "Lesser" tends to be the outcome whenever the bosses' pals are running the government, as you fucking very well know. If you want to blame someone for those deaths, blame the fuckers responsible.

I belong to a union that cares more about transgender use of toilets that real staff issues. Hopeless lefty idiots cutting and pasting every communist speech and still fighting a battle that was lost years ago. If I wasn't a part timer with cheap dues I'd resign my membership.

Aw come on Anon 3.16
Show so spine and resign and fight for your own personal contract instead of coat tailing at a discount.

3.16. - I would resign anyway.

About 4 years ago I signed up at Watties in Hastings through AWF (Allied Work Force). As part of the Induction process we were addressed by a Union representative whose sole choice of words for Watties Management was `those bastards' repeated ad nauseam during his 15 to 20 minute tirade.

Suffice to say I did not join the Union.

Mondelez is the "new" company name for Kraft-Heinz. When they went before the monopolies commission in the UK prior to buying Cadburys they made several promises on factory retention and UK employment...all of which they broke within six months.

Uncontrolled capitalism is destroying choice.. Twenty years ago all the products in British supermarket were owned by 100 companies......now all the products are owned by 10 companies. Too strong, too powerful and too rich to be controlled by our elected representatives, we are slipping backwards to the robber Barons.

Uncontrolled capitalism is the lesser of two evils when the alternative is the sort of central-planning-by-political-committee dystopia you and your ilk seek.

When you appeal top "20 years ago" you lose immediately. Very few people would want to go backwards to 20 years ago.

Presumably you were on an individual contract.
Was it more or less than the collective agreement?
