Collapse of MIS

LEONIE WOOD has written another revealing episode in The Age ( HERE ) concerning the collapse of Environinvest a MIS company which traded principally in Victoria. It’s interesting to read about the cast of characters involved in the real life drama.

CFMEU and the forest industry

One of the architects of current forestry policy, Mr O’Connor from the CFMEU has been quick to call for government assistance, as reported in The Australian dated 3rd November 2008.,,24591921-2702,00.html

The leader of the union representing forestry workers wants the Government to craft an industry plan similar to that which protects jobs and promotes growth in the car industry. It could use mechanisms such as grants and tax breaks for new investment to protect jobs and boost value adding, allowing the local industry to see off the threat of cheaper imports, Mr O’Connor said.
