NSW 'train strike'

It is absolutely disgraceful the behavior of the NSW govt. in putting a stop to train services and then trying to blame it on the rail union for striking. It wasn't a strike, it was a lock out. The uions had two weeks prior applied for limited industrial action, something they have been doing since last October inluding during the xmas period. The politicans thought that by pissing off the public and blaming the unions, they could get the unions to back down. It has now backfired on the NSW govt and the Sydney Trains chief executive Matt Longland had claimed responsibility for the lockdown

The minister for transport even went so far as to compare the union to nazi's

He should be sacked.

And it gets worse. It seems like the whole thing was planned weeks in advance

Perrotit, David Elliot (see next link) and Scummo should be flogged and quartered for playing politics with commuters


When this started and the govt. was still pretending it was the unions fault, David Elliot (the NSW transport minister) even went so far as to compare the unions to terrorists ... all whilst KNOWING this was not the unions call
