If the penalty rates for weekend workers are abolished, unions are finished in Australia are the wispers heard about town.
Speaking to a transport worker yesterday, Brian Newman from Workers First was told "....if the government swings this, I know I'm finished with unions. What's the use of being a member of an organisation that fights like an old women and only wants our fees to give to the labor party. It's a joke!"
Workers First is a firm believer in the original union concept where members needs were serviced, not "organised" from a desktop.
