The regulator says the union committed breaches of the Registered Organisations Act - all civil penalties punishable by fine. Here, the experts respond to the latest development in this long-running saga. Mr Thomson, who was recently suspended from the Labor Party by the prime minister, continues to fight for his political survival. The question now becomes whether Ms Gillard will welcome Thomson back to the party. Thomson is on the cross-benches and he has promised to support the Labor Party.

Furthermore, if he was to be taken back in the midst of continuing allegations, the government would be opening itself to further questions about whether it can make sound political judgement. For the time being, the Fair Work Australia report has opened up new political challenges that the government must now confront.

The comparison with Peter Slipper is an instructive one. While Slipper, like Thomson, is entitled to the presumption of innocence, the difference is that Slipper was stood aside immediately.

It took Thomson some time to stand aside from the parliamentary position he held early on in the term - the chair of a parliamentary committee.

The allegations are extraordinarily serious. If criminal charges were brought, the fact that Gillard did not acted sooner could be that much more serious politically. In missing that opportunity, Gillard has showed a characteristic lack of political judgement.

The Slipper and Thomson affairs have very long histories. Not just a one-off, but continuous poor judgement. It shows detachment from the electorate.

The lengthy time that FWA has taken to complete its investigations into the HSU has seriously weakened the political position of the organisation. In the s high union membership and more generous union entry rights to workplaces meant that the industrial regulator played little role in the direct enforcement of industrial awards.

FWA has found its resources thinly spread. A future Coalition government is unlikely to be sympathetic to any requests by FWA for improved funding. The chaotic internal affairs of the HSU have been serious embarrassment for the union movement and an insult to HSU members. Formal democratic procedures have failed to protect the interests of union members.

The HSU is affiliated to the Labor Party but there is little evidence the union has ever acted as a means for ordinary workers in the health sector to influence the policies of Labor governments. The downfall of Labor governments in Queensland and to a lesser extent NSW owed much to failures of public health administration.

Perhaps if the voice of workers had been heard some disasters may have been averted. The membership of the HSU has been effectively disempowered. First, unions need to have processes that are far more transparent and accountable.

Unions can no longer use the fig leaf of class war, or the pretence that these private matters that will be settled internally.

Second, the FWA needs to have better powers of investigation and prosecution in respect to unions and business organisations similar to those that operate in respect of ASIC and companies. Third, reform of the relationship between unions and the ALP is long overdue. With the decline in union and party memberships, the relationship has become too narrowly based and operates too much like a closed network. A more open relationship is required, one that is more inclusive of a broader range of representative, community based organisations, is the long-term lesson of the HSU fiasco.

Thomson, HSU probe was flawed, review finds

May 23, 1 Comments Corporate psychopaths are continually in the news. In Australia, Dr John Clarke is generally recognised the expert on corporate psychopaths and I have had the pleasure of attending his seminars and reading his books. Charming but frequently lie very flexible with the truth One would have to be suspicious of anyone who when a copy of a driving licence appears in brothel claims that his driving licence was stolen for a day. However what is noteworthy in his speech to Parliament is how he distorted the truth. For example he falsely claimed the HSU paid damages in a defamation case. He implied the FWA refused to personally interview him when he refused to meet with the FWA because he said he should not because he was the subject of police investigation. In the same speech he claimed he was getting regular letters of support from Else Skinner, aged
