Looks like the bullies at the Ports of Auckland have been colluding with Cameron Slater to unlawfully release the details of union members who speak out in the media including Cecil Walker, who spoke out on Radio New Zealand. From RNZ:
Mr Walker needed time off work in 2007 and 2008 because his wife was terminally ill.
A breakdown of how many days he wasn’t at work due to his wife’s illness was on Tuesday published on a blog site, along with other personal details.
Having looked at this post it’s clear that the only place this could come from is POAL HR. Especially when the material published uses the pronoun “we” when talking about POAL:
You may also want to mention the fact that we have paid every employee that has been diagnosed with cancer on full pay while they have been seeking treatment. Again, not a sign of a company that does not look after their staff!
This isn’t the first time Slater has published details of wharfies that could only come from POAL HR. He’s also leaked HR information about Andrew Angus and private medical details about Mita Skipper. In each case the wharfie target has spoken out in the media against the port. There are rumours the port has been paying Slater to run these smears.
This is a disgraceful breach of privacy and a blatant attempt to intimidate workers who take a stand. The only bright side to it is Slater is such an incompetent liability his actions have blown up in the face of the port. What a bunch of thuggish clowns.
