Union stiffs costing the country

Air New Zealand will axe 180 engineering jobs when it closes a maintenance facility in Auckland, according to the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union

the airline's inability to attract replacement work due to the high New Zealand dollar, the union said

Bollocks, the company cannot compete with cheaper global competitors using overpriced union labour that threatens to strike every year or two. The sooner union power is smashed and divorced from political processes to arm's length the better off New Zealand will be.
