    The sad thing is these people know they no longer even need to hide it anymore because they know they are untouchable.

    Worst that will ever happen is a slap on the wrist paid for by the union which is paid by members and/or the rotten companies that pay the unions for “training”

    Gosh! Thought this would have been put up last night!

    ACTU have nailed their colours, and, in the following eighteen hours of the news cycle? From the government? …….crickets!

    Seriously, this mob do not deserve to be sitting on the treasury bench!

    Seems a nice young man.
    I’m sure he’ll make it big in the Labor Party one day.

    Yep, good looking bloke.

    What a great way to introduce yourself to the Australian people as the new boss of a militant ACTU. Immediate media spotlight and piss off all those who support the rule of law.
    Shows support for the CMFEU.
    Much better than a bland press conference.

    PS Michael Smith has a hilarious video of McManus proposing a ban on big boobs and diets.

    Over on the Gruinaid they have the list of “unjust” laws she/he/it want to change.

    Including secondary boycott laws.

    Welcome back to 1070’s UK if that gets up.

    I think he’s looking very gaunt. Must be the stress of breaking the law.

    So we should be equally critical of those who ignore or break 18C.

  10. Infidel Tiger

    That bloke needs to be slapped around and have the rule of law explained.

  11. Dr Faustus

    McManus was the lying liar behind Mediscare.

  12. Brian

    18C is not a law to be broken.
    How do you know when you have offended someone?
    It is a weapon to silence selective groups in society, not based on the content of what was said, but on arbitrary group labelling.
    eg Bolt – what he said was correct, but the (assumed) inflection or tone was upsetting..

  13. Infidel Tiger

    I’ll tell you a few bad laws that should be ignored – unfair dismissal and the minimum wage for starters.

  14. .

    Workplace harassment is a stupid set of laws.

    Telling a bad joke that someone chooses to take offence to (no objective test), or staring a spunky coworker is considered as bad as beating the snot out of them or raping them.

    What an age to be alive.

    The CFMEU is the closest thing Australia has to the Brownshirts.

    Bio:

    Sally is a Vice-President of the ACTU directing the ACTU’s campaigns. She was previously the Secretary and Organiser with the ASU in NSW for 22 years. During Sally’s time as Secretary the ASU’s membership grew from 9,500 to 12,000 members. She has led many successful campaigns in the private, public and community sectors including the first collective agreement in the work for IBM workers, a campaign preventing water privatisation and the Equal Pay campaign for community workers which was a seven year campaign that delivered between 18-40% pay increases for all workers. Sally has also run many online campaigns and she founded the Destroy the Joint movement.

  17. The CFMEU: tough on law, tough on the causes of law.

  18. feelthebern

    and she founded the Destroy the Joint movement.

    So she’s a bully.
    Not a SJW.

  19. Leo G

    The big question- why shouldn’t the CFMEU get a discount for killing workers.

  20. struth

    I reckon we need a Crocodile Dundee style investigation into the leader of the ACTU.

    vs

    DESTROYING FREE SPEECH

    You will never be critical of the CFMEU Helen, because you are a labor hack and a moron.

    You want people to have “approved speech”, yet want the CFMEU to be able to trespass, committ assault etc at will.

  22. stackja

    Only non-Left must obey!

  23. Zatara

    So if I hammer a rail spike through your forehead, because I sincerely think you are unfair and wrong, I’m OK according to your views, right Sally?

    There are unjust, ridiculous laws but the solution is to repeal them, I guess that civil disobedience is a tool to use to that end. Trouble is that the existing laws re trade unions and their thuggish behavior are not enforced, especially here in Vic. I think we should all be able to disregard a law we consider unjust as long as you are prepared to take the consequences. If needs be become a martyr and then perhaps public opinion will demand repeal. To disregard a law and not expect consequences, well I guess the unions now have the power to expect that.

    Personally I hate compulsory bike helmet laws, but the fine here in soviet Victoria is so steep I can’t afford to disobey. What can I do?

    Wow – an astonishing growth of just over 1% per year in membership. Well done Sally!

    As I said in another post the new secgen of the Alonsky Communist Trotskyist Union is a lesbian commnuist and related to Wong the wrong .Must be a place the u.n.communusts breed these bastards,they are not normal . What’s this aparatchiks cv ? As if we didn’t know it makes the old alcoholic Hawke look sober ,and serious ,you will get no tears out of this bitch .

    You can be both.

    No no we never know when or how our speech might ‘offend’ someone.

    But when we do 55 km in a 50 km we are clear about the law.

  29. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Greens leader Richard Di Natale has praised new ACTU secretary Sally McManus for saying that she does not have a problem with unions and workers breaking “unjust” laws, saying brave people have a duty to stand up against laws that are wrong.

    Ms McManus was last night questioned about whether the peak union body would distance itself from the ­unlawful conduct of the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union, telling ABC’s 7.30: “There’s no way we’ll be doing that. I tell you this: the CFMEU, when they’ve been fined, they’ve been fined for taking industrial action. It might be ­illegal industrial action according to our current laws, and our current laws are wrong.”

    Ms McManus, who intends to lead unions on a campaign to ease legal restrictions on the right to strike, said it should not be so hard for workers to take legal industrial action when necessary.

    “I believe in the rule of law where the law is fair and the law is right,’’ she said. “But when it’s unjust, I don’t think there’s a problem with breaking it.”

    Senator Di Natale said today that Ms McManus had said what many Australians know and understand.

    “These are unjust laws and we say to people, the one thing you have is your labour and you cannot withdraw your labour, then you have the right to stand up and say ‘that’s wrong’,” he said

    “When you have international labour standards that enshrine in law the right of any person to withdraw their labour, and here in Australia we’ve got a set of laws that can make that a crime, then you have a duty to stand up to those laws.

    “No one knows more than the Greens that it does take, in a peaceful democracy, brave people to stand up against laws that are wrong if we’re going to change them.”

    Senator Di Natale congratulated Ms McManus.

    From the Oz. Di Natale isn’t Rosa Parkes, either.

    SFW, you have been the first person I have seen on various blogs to correctly identify what disobedience to “unjust” laws entails. The unions expect (and history seems to back them up), that they will not be punished for disobeying any laws, thereby giving them the power to determine what laws are unjust.

    For example, unlike the gentleman who has gone to jail several times for (silently and peacefully) protesting outside abortion clinics, they are not willing to wear consequences for disobeying the law.

    Why the sudden outrage? In Australia the unions have always been above the law and no one ever seemed to mind before.

    Dissembling troll or dunce? I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.

    When you actually understand what 18C is, get back to us. You will discover that a subjective opinion of offence bears no relation to the objective tests from which the CMFEU was convicted.

    I wish I could be as sure of the sun rising tomorrow as I was sure that Dickhead Di Natale would be the first of Australia’s political leaders to express full support for McManus’s comments.

  34. Scott

    Shouldn’t this go under “hypocrisy of progressives”?

    Are the ACTU the same union that paid out for the Greens?

  36. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    The CFMEU is the second biggest union supporter of the Greens after the Victorian branch of the Electrical Trades Union, which gave $360,000 to the Greens in the year to June 2014, the last year for which figures are available. Total union donations to the Greens reached almost $600,000 in 2013-14 following ­donations of $50,000 the previous year and $100,000 in 2011 from the ETU’s Victorian branch, with smaller amounts from several ­unions over the past decade.

    From the Oz of January 14th, 2017. The good, the holy, the saintly Greens take money from the CFMEU – the spiritual heirs of the old Builders Labourers Federation, and a by – word for union thuggery ever since.

    Hard not to notice that coat from a dead uncle’s estate as part of this person’s raiment. They seem to do the rounds. Maybe all these fashionistas are somehow related to the same dead uncle.

    It’s worse, Dot, far worse. The Male Gaze of Power has killed TRILLIONS just in the few seconds I’ve been composing this. (And they weren’t union members, so big ‘effin deal).

  44. Dr Fred Lenin

    St Vinnies do a great trade in the suits of deceased little old men in great demand amongst butch lesbians ,like this maggot and Wong ,they only buy one and wear it till it falls to bits ,they have no dress sense as well as the other sense .

  45. Rabz

    Bluddee hell, looks as though the ALPBC’s make up department would have needed a rather large tub of spakfilla, if that video still is anything to go by.

  46. Muddy

    Let’s go through this again (SIGH). There are three ‘levels’ or class of humanity: the superhumans (regressives, moral posers, ALPBC hosts etc); humans (brain-dead followers, union members etc); and subhumans (mythical ‘conservatives,’ climate deniers etc). Laws, rules, regulations, norms, values and the like can only be applied by a higher level on those below them, thus neatly rendering the identification of hypocrisy irrelevant. ‘Obeying the law’ is what you expect those lower-level scum [spit] to do, but you are not bound to do the same. Know your level and stop wasting your time being confused or outraged.

  47. Chistery

    Ladyman provides the best support money can buy, which is what you need if running an extortion racket as large and successful as the CFMEU crime syndicate.

  48. DrBeauGan

    I think the law that counts killing politicians and Union leaders as murder is an unjust law.

    “Why the sudden outrage? In Australia the unions have always been above the law and no one ever seemed to mind before.”
    Better late than never that THE TRUTH HAS FINALLY COME OUT. Her comments should cause outrage, and now I am more than bewildered that the unions and the ABC are totally “above the law” and flouting their total contempt for THE RULE OF LAW, and yet why is there no possible outlet to prosecute these groups of [bullies]? What a total joke and farce was the Royal Commission into the union movement, with no prosecution.
