    Central Coast Mariners: Season 2018/19

    Mack reported it 7 hours ago though. I started work this morning at 3.30, and up until about 6am, still no reports anywhere.

    Auf Wiedersehen Spotless

    Riera was complete shite. Flat footed, and seemed to be unfit, or not bothering to run. Get rid of him and sign a decent marquee. Also, am I the only person who's trawled through the future fixtures and reckons we can grab 18 points. Just need Wellington, City and the Jets to collapse. C'mon *****.....

    Yep, my Mum used to feed me that with white sauce. Cows stomach lining. There's nothing tasty about it except the sauce!

    Just had to replace 4 tyres, and they're 21's. Never had to buy such large tyres before. Only Pirelli and Continental in my size and cheapest was Pirelli at $350 a piece. The wife freaked!
  11. Nope, I live in Goulburn and lot's of Wanderers supporters down here and in the Highlands. Any HAL fans here already support either WSW or ESFC.
  12. Good old Juicy Lucy lol Also remember Shady Haze. I thought I was **** hot with Billabong cords I used to buy from there. And outside Westfield used to be like an army disposal store, and you could buy herbal smokes lol. Little skinny suckers that looked like joints a bit but rolled up in a leaf. Anyone remember what they were called?

    Strike wasn't deemed illegal, the FWC actually endorsed it. We had to go through FWC to even start industrial action, that even includes talking about union matters and possible industrial action. That's how anal our EBA is. Everything we did was above board, unlike the government. However once they saw the fallout from us not doing overtime for 1 day, they overturned it.

    A large portion of us have complained to the Australian Human Rights commission, as Australia is a signatory of the UN, and the right to strike is a basic human right under UN laws. I just received my response to my formal complaint. Laughable..... Info Service <InfoService@humanrights.gov.au> Reply| Today, 17:27 You Dear Mr Herrett I refer to your recent email regarding Fair Work Commission. For your information, the Australian Human Rights Commission has the power to investigate and conciliate complaints about: · discrimination because of a person’s race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, intersex status, pregnancy, marital or relationship status, age or disability as well as sexual harassment in specific areas of public life, such as, employment, education and the provision of goods and services; · racial hatred that takes place in public; · discrimination in employment because of a person’s criminal record, trade union activity, religion, political opinion or social origin; or · breaches of human rights by the Commonwealth of Australia. I appreciate the concerns you raised. Unfortunately, from the information you have provided it does not appear that the Commission’s Investigation and Conciliation Section can help you with this matter. The Commission's complaint powers do not include considering claims against Commission/tribunal Members when exercising quasi-judicial powers and functions. Commission/tribunal members are afforded judicial immunity when hearing and determining matters, which means that they are protected from civil suits made against them, including claims of discrimination and human rights breaches. You may wish to get some legal advice or assistance with respect to your options. You can contact: · Law Access (www.lawaccess.nsw.gov.au) · Legal Aid of NSW (www.legalaid.nsw.gov.au) · Community legal centre (http://www.clcnsw.org.au) · South West Sydney Legal Centre (Greater Western Sydney area only) (www.swslc.org.au) Should you have any further queries or wish to provide clarification, please respond by return email or call the National Information Service on 1300 656 419. Regards, There you have it folks. The end of Unions. The end of any power an employee has to negotiate. It's all power to the employer. Scary times.
