Officials from several unions are due to face the Royal Commission over allegations that they pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars which should have been returned to their organisations.

    We don't have a Labour Party in Australia. They do in the UK though.

    We seem to have self serving union leaders, who try to justify personal greed.
    It was never considered a union trait to revere achieving personal wealth and status over member interests.
    It changed when the "suits"took over in the 1980's. We have people running unions who have little workplace experience.
    They have formed a clique and adapted the rules to sustain their influence.
    They have sucked up members funds, like parasites. Peeing other people's hard earned money up the wall in the process.
    They perceive their positions as "jobs for life", while former members wait for a phone call offering a few hours employment.

    They are devouring away at themselves, from the top.

    That is why we have such a high proportion of the Australian workforce who are in insecure work or unemployed.

    Australian Unions no longer represent Australian Workers and families. It's been like that for decades.
