They come a time when enough is enough. Time to deregister the MUA and hold the officers accounable.

Another good example of a rogue dinosaur that doesn’t belong in 21st century Australia is the FWC itself, which prevents 200,000 employees in retail sector from directing their Default Super contributions into any other Industry Super Fund [or any other fund] outside of REST. This is simply ridiculous.
