Yeah I was surprised to see that too. No doubt that workchoices was unpopular with a lot of people but it does lend me to wonder how much of Kevin 07 was workchoices or how much was 10 years in government and lets give the other guys a go to keep everybody on their toes??? Maybe both - we will never know for sure. That said, even before the latest Royal Commission there is no doubt that unions such as the CMFEU and AMWU (to name a couple) do their cause no favors what so ever. Their leadership are perceived by both industry and (in this case) more importantly much of their membership as nothing more than common thugs and bullies. Of course there are some sections of the workforce who revel in it, most decent people are uncomfortable about it at best and won't be members of such organization given the option.
