Well they're doing a good job. Mind you, as long as that other bloke is in charge of the Libs, everyone else will look good so they need to change that quick smart.


If only Speirs was their actual problem.

The modern day SA Libs are the most inept organization SA politics has seen. They knife each other at the drop of a hat. Their factions are built on their old school tie meetings at the Adelaide Club and old family money dictates their moves. They don't listen to the people. They don't listen to the most powerful unions.

Keep in mind child protection and transforming health were in an absolute mess under Labor and these clowns got themselves kicked out after just one term.

Speirs is their best bet, that's how shit they are.
The Libs absolutely are a laughing stock and won’t be back in power anytime soon.
They should pay no attention to Unions in the slightest though, hopefully will be a thing of the past soon enough

Your average everyday worker needs a union/association or whatever title the collective group decides to use in order to represent theirselves. It is not possible in the vast majority of major enterprises to negotiate in any other way.

I am not saying that there are not bad unions or indeed bad people who are union members. I have the same reasoning on employers and their associations. Not all are bad either.

There are many employers who work closely with unions. There are even unions that work closely with employers especially during tough economic times.

Not every union is the CFMEU.

Not every employer is OTR.

Union membership is heading downwards sharply in many sectors and in some it’s nearly non existent.
They haven’t got anywhere near the power they once had

Strange that he was so against changing the shopping hours when he ran the shoppies plus in opposition (talk about living in the past) but is now leading the charge to change them.

Many Labor leaders have come from Union backgrounds obviously doesn’t mean they have the power they once did.
Why do you think people have deserted unions in droves in the last 10-15 years?

Agree

But note Labor are making Malinauskas the pin up boy for people like you - Mr Popular on every issue


Fancy a politician listening to the people and having policies that people agree with


It would be good if they were policies or there was more than 5 minutes thought put into it other than: "Will he look good if he supports this?" (eg) supermarket v hospital carparking.

What Westfield want to stop are the all day parkers who jump on the O Bahn to go to the city. They want to charge after 3 hours. Is that unreasonable? Will it deter the all day parkers?

If he, and his minders had thought for 5 minutes, they would have seen the UWU using it against him with the hospital parking charge.


Extend that O Bahn problem: Should they charge to attend the RAH? :shock: I bet SA Health have looked / are looking at the ramifications. Probably fix ramping overnight

Jim is correct that Union membership is declining.
And as such you have seen in the past Unions merge together.

I reckon our yard would be 85-90% unionised.

That would be against the tide.
