Gone rogue

Yesterday, Ports of Auckland workers won an important victory, with a judicial settlement forcing Ports of Auckland back to the negotiating table and barring the port from sacking them. The port's response? Lock everybody out. So, the management hired by Auckland Council to manage their asset are instead shutting it down and depriving their shareholders of revenue, solely in an attempt to show that they have bigger dicks than the union.

I don't think there's any question of it now: Ports of Auckland's management has gone rogue. They are no longer managing in the interests of their shareholders, but in the interests of themselves. And its time they were sacked for it.
