HSU TEMBY REPORT: VEXNEWS is first with the worst

Those wishing to read the Temby report into the HSU can read it here, exclusive to VEXNEWS.

It largely deals with procedural issues although suggests that above-market prices were paid for millions of dollars in contracts to a variety of service-providers.

It doesn’t attribute blame, as far as we can tell, although naturally the leadership of the union headed by executive president Kathy Jackson and general secretary Mike Williamson will be blamed by many for the poor corporate governance the report reveals.

UPDATE: It appears Kathy Jackson’s HSUeast planned to spend multi-millions on a commercial/residential property development in South Melbourne. Hopefully it would be run better than the union has been.

Discussion

Comments are disallowed for this post.

  1. Not sure how much of this points to Jackson. Guess we’ll know more when the full report comes out. Most of it seem to be Michael Williamson.

    Communigraphix are alleged to have given Michael Williamson & Craig Thomson a credit card. The invoices are far in excess of what other unions pay for their magazines.

    Who or what is Access Focus. Who are the directors what $5million service did they give to the HSU?

    United Edge, which Williamson is a director also scores nearly $5mill. Nice lark if you can get it. I note none of the 3 directors spoke to Temby.

    Mah Chut. What did they do for the HSU?

    Canme. The initials are the first letters of Williamson’s children. Tghe comapy is reported to be in his wife’s name.

    Andrew, I suggest you direct your rage at Williamson. Jackson may have done some silly things but least she blew the whistle on this con on HSU members. BTW: Well done fore shedding some light on this sorry saga

  3. I keep thinking of Maria pushing that trolley up and down the hospital wards cleaning the wards & kitchens , and wandering if she can make ends meet to still ensure she can pay her union fees and get her kids through state school and fill her car with petrol times are tough all round, even harder when stretching a low wage. If only she knew her fees were funding the construction of a luxury private holiday home or a union funded car for an ex-employee & estranged husband or legal battles to ensure that the union stays merged so that the leadership retain their obscene benefits and factional control. Call me old school unionist but when i was growing up unions spent money representing workers not helping themselves to the “poorest” workers meagre wages to fund what can only be described as a criminal racket.Neither Jackson nor Williamson after universal public condemnation from union bodies and no-confidence motions appear to wish to relinquish their roles and stubbornly continue to grind out the shameful posturing of innocence. Disgraceful.

  4. Poor old Bolano the sock puppet,plenty of spare time soon

    Posted by Mah-Chut tut | April 30, 2012, 20:19
  5. The Jackson Factions drummer, Bad Ass Bolano has released his first solo album, “A Gift of Love”. This brutal punk effort resonates with all the hate and bile that Bolano has become renowned for. A full throttle punk ride that is fast and furious. I questioned Bad Ass on the title and he told me to “get fucked and go do some research”. It seems “A gift of love shows” the sentimental side of this wild child, with homemade pasta along with punk being his passion.
     
    The album opens with the soaring anathematic “pasta for poofters and punks”. Here Bolano shows his full command of the English language with references to “righteous rigatoni” and “penne for penetration”.

    Track 2 is a surprising melancholy track, “Kaffy”. This is a tribute, to, as Bolano describes, “the most courageous woman on erff”. Here he wears his heart on his sleeve, showing his unabashed love for his lead singer from the Jackson Faction.
     
    Track 3 is a full tilt headlong smash grab cover of U2’s, Wiff or Wiff Out You”. This track is destined for high rotation on all Punk stations.

    The pace takes off on track 4, “I wish me muvver drowned me a birff”. This is a barnstorming tirade of hate directed at just about everyone.
     
    Track 5, EBA and acronym for Eat Blood Arsehole is a vicious look at the even darker side of Bolano complex makeup. Screaming vocals denouncing everything (excluding pasta)…”wiff me fits I can hurt but wiff an EBA I can rule cause no fucker fucks wiff me, its Saturday night so fuck the gift of love.. I wanna go the knuckle wiff any fucker”…These touching lyrics are a juxtaposition to most material on the album.
     
    Track 6 and possible the best track on this masterpiece is, “ I don’t make frets I follow fru wiff fear”. A powerhouse of brutality, this track is white hot. Here Bolano ups the tempo yet again, punching out lyrics that scream “pasta with  Napolitano sauce” a menacing reference to blood on the streets. And as if a poignant segue the closing track is, “The faceless men of Sussex Street”.
     
    This is pure rage against the machine, and the reality that weakness, like his, is a burden that he can’t carry. With references to a lost lover and pasta soul mate, Bolano is unrelenting in his inferior self, deluded in his thinking that hate is the answer to everything…well hate and pasta is the answer to everything.
     
     
    “A Gift of Love” makes a statement, but just what that is I’m not sure. I asked Bad Ass what was the album about? He replied, ”there just fuckin songs”. I asked for his favourite track and in an instant he said, “Kaffy”, I fuckin love her man…. I just wish I was Nipple Ring, then I could have her all to myself’.

  6. @ Jimmy, more rants mate but if what you are saying is true then the ETU make the right wing branches of the CEPU look like pikers. Members gearing up for some action against ‘officials’ who demanded a meeting under the rules and then come to Melbourne for a piss up (pissing 50K up against a wall into the bargain) and refused to do any business on behalf of the members. More tantrums than a toddlers birthday party from the right and their cronies. More breaches of the act than dodgy spruiker for get rich quick scheme, all done in front of members, plenty of work for lawyers from the CEPU, just wait till the ads go in the national papers for the class action!!

    Too right mate, very well put. Unfortunately there are not too many old school unionists in unions these days. Most of them think they are more important than the members and you are less likely to find someone who actually worked on the shop floor. Most of them are either on the ALP preselection gravy train, the cushy government job gravy train? Government board position gravy train? It is a tragedy what the union movement has become and most of this crap is associated with the right of the ALP.

  9. Both Jacksons and Williamsons ambitions and lust for power appear to have exceeded any skills they had to run a member based organisation with what would be considered now mandatory financial checks and balances . Their total lack of accountability is also reflected in their un-endorsed move to amalgamation both their branches to secure themselves both the most ludicrously high salaries of which they both seriously failed to understand or implement correct financial controls and Governance procedures.The auditor clearly states this lack of correct process is one of the worst he has seen and in most companies businesses and other organisations such a parlous report would send the Managers packing. It is unacceptable that Jackson and Williamson protest and consider this indicting report not a direct result of their own incompetant and clear mismanagement of a member based organisation.

  12. KJ alll because you wear a union shirt doesn’t make you a unionist. You forced Williamson upon the membership without a vote. You agreed to take an obscene salary package of $270K and you still continue to. You will fight the de-merge because you want total control.You called shorten’s move a stunt yet you sat on your hands promising to do the same. For years under your watch credit cards were used to pay for tabs at the Linc a well known fact. You allowed and took part in the systemic abuse of members money through legal actions to sort out internal union dysfunction your ex husband still drives around a union car. The antiseptic of public scrutiny as you so dilligently point out is a great thing, as you received your member paid privately negotiated obscene salary.

  13. “From beginning to end, the Health Services Union affair has been marked most notably by the extent to which most of its principal protagonists have missed the point. It’s not about Craig Thomson. It’s not about the survival of the Gillard Government. It’s not about the ALP, or the struggle for supremacy within the union itself, with its Byzantine maze of poisonous tunnels and interconnections. To a large extent, it doesn’t even matter who was there at the brothel, or whether there was (excuse me) a second shooter.

    The point of the HSU affair – and its most galling scandal – is that a large number of poorly paid workers have systematically been fleeced, over a period of time, by people who were supposed to look after them.” Annabel Crabb quoted from the drum column.

  15. They are a slur on the Union movement.Thankfully they are rare.
    The’Right’ is a poison in the Labour movement, bigger crooks than the Tories. As a long time unionist and staunch believer in Unions i cringe at the likes of Shorten,Howles et al. I am convinced they are just the fall back guys for the Tories for the short periods they are out of power.Honestly,somebody tell me ‘ONE’ thing iether of the aforementioned achieved for there members of any significance. Why do the press trumpet them as great Union leaders? I would love to see Williamson and Jackson Jailed, they are crooks, based on their salaries alone.

  16. Isn’t it a bit rich for KJ to be claiming credit for Temby’s exposure of HSU failures of governance? What governance was exercised in agreeing to the Vic branch merger with HSUEast? There wasn’t even a membership vote.

  25. The others sat upon the mat, Michael counted three,
    The credit card was under the hat while the stripper drank her tea.
    Craig danced the pas de deux, Marco sang the blues,
    And four and twenty Taliban supporters went out in blue suede shoes.
    The committee sang a sad, sad song, the accountant played his horn,
    And the members felt the water break when a new branch was born.
    Three jealous organisers did wail all night, two more barked in rhyme,
    And the loyal assistants drank Turpentine.
    But alas, alack, the ghosts came back, and rattled their chain and ball,
    And Craig and Michael cried all night, while Kathy told all,
    And so our story here must cease, our tale must surely end,
    Or else go to Fair Work for twenty years, and drive Julia round the bend.

    Then take a huge personal kick back from your mate at the company you bought them from.

  33. Ive just watched the news and saw what is truly the most dissappointing footage of police ( doing their job ) walking into the NSW office to carry out a raid. Then low and behold, I see none other than Kathy Jackson being interviewed saying stating how supportive she is of the police conducting such a raid and then thanked the media for all their support. This poor excuse for a lady ( actually more an embarrassment to the female sisterhood) actually appeared to be gloating on this terrible situation the union which I have been a victorian member for over 15 years, now finds itself in.
    How was it that Kathy happened to be in NSW the very day a raid occurs on the NSW office? I find this very strange in deed. But the most sickening thing about all this is Kathy Jackson clearly acknowledges that over the years in her senior executive role of the HSU east branch she has had no hand at all in any of the poor management of the union. I’m the first to say hang Michael Williamson if he is found to have done the wrong thing, which appears he has done, but surely he is not the only one. And surely it is not just the executives of NSW who have poosibly assisted or knowingly assisted him. Surely Kathy Jackson also has some serious questions to answer , and yet she appears to be nothing more than a saint in all this. Obviously this so called Exectutive President is greater than God himself and I only hope that after all the investigatations are concluded that they find Kathy Jackson innocent of everything as if they don’t she is even more of a Judas than Judas was walking alongside Jesus.

  38. This is a polite but direct question to Kathy Jackson, who surely reads this website like most people with any connection with the HSU. My question is, ” you may have done the right thing by reporting alleged corruptive actions by certain people, fair enough, the truth will eventually come out, but, can you please explain via this website, why you continually have to make inflaming comments to the media, which only keep the negative view of the HSU, ( not just HSUeast branch ) in the media and in turn adverlsely affects the mindset of all it’s low paid hard working members, right around the country. Why can’t you now, just stay out of the media, make no further comment and just let the authorities do their thing. I would really appreciate it if you could answer this question.

    Ms Jackson is now taking credit for the NSW Fraud Squad executing a warrant to seize documents from HSU east .

    Let’s hope that Carnarvon widen this search and remove items from the Grace storage unit in and these be furnished to the forensic auditor together with this removed from Pitt Strret.n

    Now that may be a little more complicated for Ms Jackson to explain away as:
    “Nothing short of a vindicate smear campaign against me”
    “A political stunt by Shorten to sure up his numbers”
    “That is for my estranged husband to address, it is not a matter for me”

    Ms Jackson,it seems you were happy for “financial support” should we mention Neranto 9.

  49. It does not include the sex workers statement regarding services purchased on union finds nor the video footage from the cameras at the providing establishments.
    Btw, wasn’t Slater & Gordon the firm that ‘let’ Gillard go after she set up AWU bank accounts for her then lover Bruce Morton Wilson, a AWU racketeer, to then illegally take >$1m ? With allegations via a stat dec from Bob H (awu vict president) that Wilson and Gillard stole & used that money? Gillard has admitted the setting up the accounts as Slater & Gordon legal council to the then AWU. It is then alleged being rescued by Shorten & Conroy she was hidden away in Brumbies offfice staff, and then rehabilitated to get a seat selection.
    Seems like the whole HSU affair is very close to a big dark ugly past that Gillard would be very embarrassed to have to explain to the public. The rot is from the top down, they all have dirty hands in thieving from the members they supposedly represent.

  50. As police were seizing computers and documents from the union’s second-floor offices, other officers are believed to have intercepted Mr Williamson and his son Chris in the underground car park. Mr Williamson, who is on leave with full pay, and his son, a union employee, had a large black suitcase containing documents, which they were allegedly putting into the back of a car.

    The confiscated suitcase, along with dozens of boxes of documents, was loaded into a police truck when detectives finished their search about 3pm.
