Are Unions Still for Members?

The behaviour of some in the union movement makes me wonder what else is going on that we don't know about.

What is it with the union movement in this country.

It seems to have moved away from sticking up for workers to simply being ALP campaign machines and personal fiefdoms for the union aristocracy and their preferred apparatchiks.

This morning’s Australian newspaper has a splash with former health Services Union boss inheriting millions of dollars after declaring bankruptcy after admitting fraud of union member funds.

Then there is story of Australia’s highest paid union leader – United Firefighters Union’s Peter Marshall. He gets paid $470,280 per year. Not quite as much as the Prime Minister but it’s still a pretty impressive pay packet to represent the 4031 UFU members.
