The document below indicts Union Secretary Simcoe, industrial Officer Moxham, and Union Organizer Puplett of The Builders Labourers Federation as class enemies.


Facts relied upon: At work the week prior to 1/10/96, two twin speaker ghetto blaster type radio systems were intermittently turned on full bore causing excessive noise. Before work 1l10/96 member 200325 reminds all hands this type of personal equipment on the job is banned by the union.

One Saal says he is the delegate, says he will ring the union and check, some time later during work one Moore turns his blaster on full bore, claimed he wanted to be able to hear John Laws, over the noise of a yard forklift that had a rooted muffler.

One checks back with Saal the bug delegate, he says he did not ring the union at all but telephoned Yates the yard manager who was on his way, ringing the union one speaks to Kerr and gets abused and hung up on, then drives into union premises, Kerr is busy while he is waiting spots Gary Howcroft, former, before Smith, president of the P&D Union, who by now had wormed his rotten way into the offices of the BWIU.

R
eminds Howcroft the current campaign the Dockies Union was undertaking, requires him to testify re his relationship with Ron Chapman, like when was the last time he saw him alive and in whose company was he, and about Batkin, and Norm Foorde, and re his hightailing it out of the said Dockies Union, at the time of the 1980 union election campaign,

Despite the fact he was then Union President, and was a candidate for election to the position of Secretary, and was he in fact warned he would necessarily be running afoul of elements who might kill him as they had killed before.

Howcroft sneered, and almost got through turning his lip in contempt, when he had to beat a hasty retreat into the interior of a locked office complex, MT in pursuit.

Kerr arrived back on the scene, shook hands with MT, cluck clucked at the Howcroft chasing incident, listened to the account of what had happened at Bell Scaffolding explained Ted Puplett was the organizer for that area, rang him arranging for him to be at Bell's gate.

Which is where he was when MT arrived back, briefly explaining the situation to him and being assured in return, that double or multi speaker systems were indeed barred from the workplace by the union.

Puplett's clear role then was to upbraid the members for having this gear on the job, explain that the concept of bodgey delegates who rang the boss instead of the union, was as iffy as can be, endorse MT as new and fair dinkum delegate, and we all go back to work.

Instead of that, Puplett hears Yates out then tells MT to hear Yates out, who says MT is sacked and he had better get off the premises, or he will have the coppers to him, all the while Puplett and Saal are smirking and grinning to each other like vicar and choirboy.


Howcroft suffered two broken legs in October 1996, maybe he approached someone to have M Timothy seen to, and got seen to himself.
