75 workplace deaths a year ok then?

Written By: - Date published: 9:36 pm, April 30th, 2013 - 116 comments

The Independent Taskforce on Workplace Safety  finds the New Zealand workplace health and safety system is “not fit for purpose” and is an indictment of employer self-regulation. An average of 100 people die each year in New Zealand, and the Taskforce thinks National’s target of reducing workplace deaths by 25% by 2020 is modest – I think it means the government still doesn’t get it. One death at work is one too many –  zero tolerance should be the policy.

When you look at the dependence of farmers in extreme climates around the world who are reliant on regular weather like the monsoons in Bangladesh or the mild winters in the gulf stream washed areas like Europe, it is clear how reliant we are for food on our relatively unchanging climate of the past 11,000 years.

Networks of influence: (dis)Advantage NZ

Written By: - Date published: 9:33 am, April 30th, 2013 - 21 comments

An Advantage New Zealand conference at SkyCity is the centre of major PR for John Key-backed, big oil exploration in NZ. While promoting and backing each others’ destructive profiteering, and endangering NZ’s environment, they are nurturing their networks of influence over expensive dinners and on the golf course.

Why Lewis Evans wants you to keep paying too much for power

Written By: - Date published: 7:22 am, April 30th, 2013 - 43 comments

Lewis Evans had an op-ed in the Dompost yesterday. It attacked NZ Power in confused terms. Evans claimed, for instance, that all the savings from lower costs would come from lower dividends to the Government, when a moment’s thought shows you that’s not true and will be even less true after the asset sales. The disclosure statement at the end of Evans’ op-ed doesn’t mention Contact and Meridian pay him.

Asset values, power prices and regulation

Written By: - Date published: 9:03 pm, April 29th, 2013 - 11 comments

Geoff Bertram states in today’s DomPost  that he advised the Select Committee on the Mighty River Power sale that  power companies’ excessive profits were potentially subject to regulatory interest by any government that placed consumer interest ahead of the companies’ interests, and that this would significantly affect their values. The Government and the companies cannot say they were not warned.

John Key has committed to giving up the National Party’s leadership if he loses the next election. That didn’t stop him from committing the next National Government from reversing NZ Power and putting up electricity prices whenever it comes to power . It got me thinking about the people who are so keen to kill NZ Power in its cradle and why. Today: MRP CEO Doug Heffernan.

Strikes: One Law for All

Written By: - Date published: 10:09 pm, April 26th, 2013 - 28 comments

National’s  Labour laws announced today have new sanctions on workers’ strikes: parties will have to provide notice of a strike, and employers will have a new right to fine workers for “partial strikes.” Also today the Herald’s Insider  reports business reaction to Labour’s NZPower and invokes the threat of capital strike,  posed as a threat to an elected government’s right to govern. If Simon Bridges wants to see fairness,  then capital strikes by business should surely face the same constraints as worker strikes.

$250k for failed Job Interview

Written By: - Date published: 4:37 pm, April 26th, 2013 - 22 comments

I like my employer, and they’re not ungenerous.  But I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t spend $250,000 on helping me to get another job – and one that I’m a long shot for at that.

As Tim Groser’s employers, you’ve got to wonder just how generous we as voters are being.  And why either he doesn’t think we’re good enough employers and wants to leave, or why National want rid of him.
