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.
