Crush 'em Crusher

Judith Collins is on the warpath after finding out that her department has been funding the Corrections Association to the tune of $130,000 per annum when they are sitting on a war chest of over $2million.

This is simply untenable for the union to be bludging off of the state when the reality of the situation is that they are flush with funds.

How many other unions are similarly rorting taxpayers to fund their officials salaries and travel perks?

If we are asking our representatives to end the troughing then we must also cut this extravagant spending from the public service. Clearly the funds have been asked for under false pretenses.

I think that it is high time that there was an independent Comptroller General of Unions that regularly audited them and their financing arrangements.

The troughing must end and end now.
