United stand on ‘ sub­sidy’

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

I NOTE with in­ter­est the con­tro­versy sur­round­ing United Voice’s gen­er­ous sub­sidy of Co­ralee O’Rourke’s salary dur­ing the last two months of her re­cent suc­cess­ful elec­tion cam­paign for the state seat of Mund­ing­burra.

Now I must ad­mit I am not a mem­ber of United Voice, but if I was, I would be re­ally proud to know that my union had played an im­por­tant part in rid­ding Queens­land of a gov­ern­ment that, as one of its first acts of of­fice, was to sack 14,000 of my mates.

Well done United Voice. Work­ing Queens­lan­ders salute you.

BOB BRICE,

Wul­guru.
