A Right to Withdraw From Strike

The seeds were planted early this year after the Fair Work Commission halted a NSW Rail Strike that was voted for by only 6% of the unions rail workers via a txt poll.

Anger for the Sake of Anger- Union Blockade

To say the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) is creating a straw man argument to justify holding hostage the Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), would be giving straw men from all walks of ideology a bad name. A few irresponsible MUA leaders have suspended reality by blaming VICT for not hiring a causal employee and failing to acknowledge it is a Federal law that bars VICT from doing so. This is not a straw man, I’m not sure if this is even misdirection, its pure anger just for the sake of being angry.
