Qld trade unions, mostly the public service unions, have of late engaged in much renting of garments.
They have protested outside parliament house, made hot & furious comments into TV cameras, and stated how terrible things are now in Qld... blah blah blah...
This the the squealing of the spoilt child who is told they can't have an extra dessert.
Under the previous government the public service, particuarly the clerical functions, enjoyed the status of "most favoured child".
Where were these unions (supposedly so concerned about their members) when under the erstwhile state government nurses were going weeks (& months) without pay?
That was the time to go on strike, to stand in "solidarity" with their sisters who toiled in hospitals, to really kick up a fuss, etc.
Instead there was nary a peep.
So why the sudden (& hypocritical) whingeing now, over lesser issues?
