New Union Boss: “It’s okay for Unions to break the law”

The new boss of the ACTU (Australian Council of Trade Unions) Sally McManus has said she’s believes in breaking laws, when those laws are seen as “unjust and unfair”…

 ​First their ABC publishes an anti-Saudi Arabia article and now they publish these remarks by a clearly unhinged leftist, who states “It’s okay to break laws if you find them unjust!”.. It’s getting awfully Twilight Zoney in here!!The late Bill leak summed up the unions perfectly in this cartoon!


Here’s the transcript of the above video:

SALES: Do you believe in the rule of law?

MCMANUS: Uh, yes

SALES: Given that, will the ACTU consider distancing itself from the CFMEU which has faced 118 separate legal proceedings where it’s either broken the law, or acted in contempt of court?

MCMANUS: There is no way we will be doing that. I’ll tell you this, the CFMEU when they’ve been fined, they’ve been fined for taking industrial action-

SALES: Illegal industrial action

MCMANUS: It might be illegal industrial action according to our current laws and our current laws are wrong. It shouldn’t be so hard for workers in our country to take industrial action when they need to. Quite often these workers have stopped work because a worker has been killed on a building site. And know this, that union gets fined more than the companies that actually kill workers. So Grocon got fined $330,000 for killing five workers and the CFMEU got fined even more and I just think that’s totally wrong.

SALES: Yet nonetheless we live in a country where there are laws established by a parliament that all citizens are expected to abide by. So regardless of whether you agree or disagree with those laws, you said you agree with the rule of law.

MCMANUS: Yeah I believe in the rule of law when the law is fair and the law is right, but when it’s unjust I don’t think there’s a problem with breaking it.
