Scabs on the Australian Docks: July 15, 1991 a Fijian seaman from the British ship Pacific Guardian, used a ship's stores hoist to complete a job begun by a striking dockyard crane driver, one man only refused to work, the remainder of the Queensland Painters and Dockers worked on when he was sacked!
WARNED OFF: KW & IS Briggs whose influence on this union has been pernicious and whose presence at or near this union will not be tolerated. Likewise Neville Ash, Jim Elliot, Keith Welsh, Dave Rawcliff, Jack Fein, Ron & Danny Kepple, the revolting ponces Peter Kennedy and Pat Meehan, with Lorraine Meehan's consort,
Ivy the Wooloongabba prostitute the consort of the scab ponce John Burke, hangers on Noel Wyeth and Tich Kilroy. John Etchells, Commo Mick and John Diggins from the WWF, Hugh Williams from the TWU and the dogs in human form Bill Coleman and Gordon Buchanan.
The scabs Ken Reeves, Jim Reber, Ron Spence, John Sheehan, Mick Dwyer, and Jos Witjes likewise and bar staff Mary at the Empire Hotel, Ruth at the Local Hero Hotel, Jan at the Royal George formerly WWF Club Bar and Prune Face at the Shamrock, these last four are fellow travellers with scabs and murderers, and like the other warned off persons and scabs, are regarded as being tainted with murder.
Frank & Ken Currie and Bobby Anderson better keep away as well. Citing Franks long term membership of this union and Ken Currie's membership at least since 1974. Frank tossing his head in the face of the union campaign, seeking prosecutions re the murders of his workmates. Ken Currie peeping from a safe distance, at the union man distributing leaflets in King George Square in 1995, nor one syllable or one finger lifted in defense of the union, or in support of the justice campaign.
Bobby Anderson likewise running around like a blue arsed fly, claiming to be an elder of the aboriginal people, and running just as fast away from the union campaign, what a dead set wanker, murdered Ronnie Chapman was an aboriginal, and for the way he stood to see these people run away, surely turned the guts of this writer.
Calling people names like scabs and dogs is not what I do. If any body reckons that they have been maligned well all they have to do is get involved in the campaign. We are seeking the prosecution of those elements who harmed and killed our workmates. Prove you are not scabs and dogs. MT 1/06.
Chapman's own family in the person of the scab Don Burns, who appropriated the murdered mans car, likewise regarded as having made insufficient effort in the campaign to reopen the inquest into his death. A campaign that will continue.
Rocco Rogers was the strongest and toughest Painter and Docker, he and his two sons Gary and John scabbed in '91. Rock died in '95, John died about a year later.

Gazetted as scab Don Burns. He claimed in 1988 it was for fear of murder that he abandoned his responsibility to defend the union against the depredations of the Smith/Reed/Mason clique and their political masters.
Citing the deaths of Chapman who was his brother in law, and Batkin as reasons for his decision. He claimed he was leaving the industry for good. However once the union was deregistered he returned to work at Cairncross Dock, where scabs rule.

Kerry Beak who wants to talk about Zervos and about a scheme he devised while he was foreman at Peter's Ship Repair re him pocketing the men’s meal money.
Tell us about how you were a wharfie in Sydney and a scab in Brisbane, re working with a blackleg seaman from the British registered ship Pacific Guardian at Cairncross Dock 15/7/1991, who was impressed into service driving a ship's stores hoist, to complete a routine task at the workface begun by a dockyard crane driver who was on strike at the behest of his union.
One man sacked for refusing to scab, the remainder of the membership working on as scabs or remaining mute in the face of scabbery or both. Page 4
The same Zionist clique that was then and still is in control of Australian politics, had via their control of the press and news dissemination apparatus, endorsed as Prime Ministers the scabs Bob Hawke and Paul Keating, whose 1988 legislation provided de registration for unions with less than 10,000 members.Intro: The Painters and Dockers Union, Queensland Branch had been infiltrated by scabs led by Zionist Izzy Wyner secretary of the Sydney Branch, who had brought Lebanese and Palestinian war criminals fresh from the killing fields, and inserted them into Australian's jobs on the docks.
The scab clique that was in control in Brisbane, led by Wyner protege Ray Winning, had similarly infiltrated scabs into the union that had been recruited off the street, or via the prison system or from other unions, notably the Waterside Workers Federation and the Seaman's Union of Australia, who were rewarded as scabs with jobs, who supported the push within the union that had surrendered to the Hawke / Keating legislation, which would effectively de unionize the docks.
Members Ron Chapman and Les Batkin both vocal opponents of de registration, were murdered in 1987 within days of each other during the height of debate within the union re the future of the operation, another member was set upon in the union hall and beaten then raped with a broom handle, by three of the same scabs that had been recruited as standover men, who were from the union's management committee.
Winning drank and smoked himself to death in 1992, whence I was elected Secretary of the Queensland Branch of the Painters and Dockers Union.
My first act as secretary was to expel the remainder of the entire membership as scabs, they had worked, on or remained silent after I had been sacked 15 July 1991, after refusing to work with a scab Fijian seaman on the British registered ship Pacific Guardian, who had been impressed into service driving a ship's stores hoist, to complete a job begun by a dockyard crane driver who was on strike at the behest of his union.
John Burke and Bob Mason were scab President and VP, during the scabbing and murder operations within the union, Jack Canning formerly the Engineers Union shop steward at United Ship Repair Services, was scab foreman on the day, he took advantage of the fear that the murders of Batkin and Chapman had caused which muted the union response, to push the scab agenda in the dockyard, and like the rest of the scabs his work record is tainted by the murder of his workmates!
The Australian registered tanker Australian Achiever, of 127,575 tonnes summer deadweight, cleared the New Zealand port of Whangarei for the port of Brisbane at 2030 on 7 November 1992. The ship had part discharged and retained on board about 35,000 tonnes of crude oil.
At 2230, the exhaust gas uptake high temperature alarm sounded and the temperature reading was seen to be 10 degrees Celsius above the alarm setting. The engine was slowed to reduce the temperature and the waste heat unit was inspected for hot spots. None were found and the engine speed was increased at 2345.
At 0115 on 8 November, when about 11 miles from the nearest land, the exhaust gas alarm sounded again and the main engine revolutions were reduced. A further inspection of the waste-heat unit revealed a small area glowing red at the forward, inboard corner. The main engine was stopped and the crew were alerted.
The fire within the waste-heat unit could not be fought directly and the main fire fighting effort concentrated on boundary cooling. After fire burnt a hole through the casing, several portable C02. extinguishers were discharged into the unit through the hole, without effect.
The ship's engineers initiated the proper established procedures and stopped the engine. Although the weather was favourable and the current tended to take the ship offshore, given the proximity of the land and the nature of the cargo, the Master requested that a tug be made available to tow the vessel back to Whangarei.
The fire in the waste-heat unit had reached such an intensity that areas of the generating section's steel tube banks, and a small section of the steel casing reached fusion temperature with resulting meltdown of the materials.
At daybreak, the crew prepared for the tow by hanging off the starboard anchor and ranging the anchor cable. A tug arrived at 0955 and the tow was connected at 1132. By 2100, the ship had been brought safely to harbour and it subsequently anchored in Bream Bay.
The fire was contained throughout 8 November and into 9 November by boundary cooling. It was extinguished by 1515 on 9 November, but it was considered prudent not to open up the unit until the area had cooled further. in all the fire burnt for some 39 hours.
Officers of New Zealand's Ministry of Transport, Maritime Transport Division, were appointed by the Inspector to undertake an initial investigation on behalf of the Australian Department of Transport and Communications.
20 November 1992 Whyte Island Ferry Terminal Friday, Mason phones and says there is a job on a ship that had a fire in the engine room at sea which was moored at an oil terminal at the river mouth, and that one should proceed to Whyte Island, take the ferry from there to the vessel, go aboard and report to the mate for further instructions.
Citing threats he made to oneself to and other members, and his conduct re Pacific Guardian scab affair. And that his conduct was the subject of complaints one had made to variously to Peter Beattie 9 October '92, in his role as PCJC chair as described above, then five grand out of pocket with nothing to show, on 6 November to the police re Detectives Kajewski and Doyle at City CIB telling them of threats, hijacked elections and murder, then on 17 November after disinterest from Kajewski and Doyle, to inspector McMenamin at the CJC.During the previous communication we had in October, one had told him he was expelled from the union and that his life membership was rescinded.
At the ferry landing was a group of seedy strangers, their leader a man who identified himself as a member of the Seamen's Union of Australia who said he and his group were to be going aboard the Australian Achiever to clean up after a fire in the engine room. When asked if any of them had signed articles or was going to sign articles when on board, he replied no.One asked Mason what the police had said to him, he replied he had not been questioned by the police at any time regarding any matter whatever, and did one want the job or not.
When asked of the scope of the work to be performed, he replied they intended to erect scaffolding, remove and replace any fire damaged material, then prepare and paint the fire blackened paintwork, this person was then told that within the precincts of the Port of Brisbane such tasks were undertaken by Painters and Dockers.
Decades of bashings and murder and infiltration by nancy boys and thugs had led to this.. Joe whose nephew Mark Redding was subsequently to disappear, set upon on union premises and biffed by Committee Members Edwards and Percy then raped with a broom handle by Committee Member Bridges later to scab on the Pacific Guardian.He then smiled, his lips parted and his teeth appeared prominent, like the visage of a fresh corpse being consumed by flame .. I realized I was in the presence of the Devil.
Their description of this event recalled Bob Foreman's disclosure in the same place that he had raped and murdered Judith and Susan, Foreman hooting and hollering re the girls vagina's being tight, Percy hooting and roaring describing Joe's ordeal.
The SUA scab and his boys were warned theirs and their union’s industrial reputations were then under extreme duress, they were told of the historical imperatives that existed regarding the division of labor on the Australian waterfront and they were being used as pawns and scabs, of a systemic campaign of terror, violence and murder being waged against Painters and Dockers.
One scab yells you would not have said that twenty years ago.. "Not so my man," says I "are there any fighters among you." A red hatred pony tailed scab was reminded if he should want to put up his fists now was the time.As a result active membership consisted of one man only, the treacherous S 193 of The Australian Industrial Relations Act providing de registration was about to be implemented, and if they wanted to work on the Australian waterfront their responsibility was to belong to the appropriate union.
Deja vu at the BLF meetings re the Bell Scaffolding sacking when the daisies and pansies there talked tough, one mug swings his hand toward MT, I place him in a Chinese death lock, he nearly wets his pants.
Tony Bigmouth is challenged to put up his dukes and his money, get your scab mates Moxham, Simcoe and Puplett to back you, runs out of the meeting like a dog with his tail between his legs. One mug full of dutch courage and surrounded by scabs says he will knock me out.
Or the flogging I dished out to Les Smith, he had run out of the union to the far more lucrative fields of sea going employment In 1985, only coming near the P&D's when Merv Collins or somebody needed to be bashed. He is big mouthing it to his rotten cronies and alternately glaring at MT, says "you had better get your head out of union business, and do not go picking on Bobby Reed," I tell him since he is no longer a member of this union but a member of the SUA to go and have it out with them, then I smack him around a bit.Does not try though might have heard about the hammering I served up to Bob Reed when he threatened Normie I say, 'in case you reckon you can tell me who I can talk to. get this.'
At Whyte Island the ferryman refuses MT passage I was not going aboard when scabs are on the job anyway I tell him, so off the scabs go in the ferry. Next on the scene was Mr Revolting, Peter the scabby shipwright a member of the Waterside Workers Federation, there to take the next ferry out to the Australian Achiever to complete barge to ship transfers of ship's stores, work hitherto in this port at least, carried out only by Painters and Dockers or articled seamen.
His droogs were scab dockers who had fed for years on the union, parasites, tradesmen who had abandoned their trades or beached seamen, who had jobs by Bob Mason's good grace, who claimed to have voluntarily relinquished P&D union membership and joined the metal workers union.
Kim Beazley seems to be a mole, a John Le Carre style deep penetration agent controlled by George Schultz of the United States State Department, who was the author of a press release issued by Beazley, paraphrasing Australian Labor Party policy re US nuclear armed warship visits. page 7 July 1998 Page 8In a scandalous deal brokered by class enemies which was to leave the combined scab forces of the WWF and the SUA free to form the super scab union the Maritime Union of Australia.
