    Why does this union not dip its hands in its pockets and help out those workers who they claim are now destitute? If any were actually members and PAID their dues, they deserve something better in return.

    Good luck with getting Lowe to go anywhere before the next election. It will take more than the few of you to send a message to these politicians (from both sides) that we are tired of them begging us for votes and then lauding it over us that they have won as though we had no part in it. Perhaps when they start treating us as partners in their endeavours instead of powerless imbeciles they will actually see some positive results.

    Correction – that’s “lording it over us”.

    You’re quite right Mr President and company, march them up and down. Please do not let them get word a few months later that you had only set out to play the role of Duke of York as you have done with a particular group in 2011 after which you led them to the master to complain about his dog whom he had afore fed in 2007!

    don’t mind the negative comment that will come just remember you stood up for yourself and others and that a start everyone don’t know how to do that

    Frederick ! You should ask the authorities to treat the workers properly.

    I wonder what the unions do with the fees paid in?just to pay the president and officers? Use d money to help the laid off workers. That is if there are registered members of the union.
