Tainui personnel jumps ship

Whoa! News just in – lead Tainui claims personnel have jumped ship and are off to run the Ngai Tahu claims operations. Its reported that others are planning to follow the move down south.

Working conditions are so toxic at Tainui that good employees are leaving in droves. Where on earth will you find experienced replacements once those people are gone?

    Donna Flavell has left Tainui for the south’s greener but colder pastures. More money down there too.

    We lay the blame on Patsy Mcleans horrible CEO leadership. The good workers are leaving but they are being replaced by incompetent patsies.

    Mr Pohio might I suggest you sit down and have a cup of tea – take a break and think about what you’re doing before making more of our whanau unemployed..

    From my perspective as one of the registered owners of TGH I welcome appreciate and accept the olive branch of business cooperation offered, by Hamilton’s corridors of commerce. Working as an inclusive community our success as another powerhouse in Aotearoa will help rebalance our nation’s economy.

    The stand-over tactics ushered in by the review process and WRLT CE Ms Mclean will stop when TKI initiate the same legal processes they’ve done in the past i.e. see court rulings as your example.

    Retail shopping at the base works like this, it goes up when more of our people are employed and have extra money to spend… it’ll go down when project contractors and sub-contractors make our whanau unemployed because the bases development programme is stalled!

    Discuss these matters with HCC’s mayor by negotiating hard in the same way the govt have done to Christchurch CC. It’s in your best interest to, stop putting our whanau on the unemployment line it’s over 17% as it is… have you had that cup of tea yet!

    This message is specifically for the board of directors at TGH…. leave that minibar alone and have that cuppa… you’ll all think better.

    We have a number of talented whanau whose wit, insight, and sense of humour is a pleasure to read.Keep up the heat Eraka you’re doing fine, kia ora.

    looking from the outside, I enjoy seeing our people standing up and voicing their concerns in regards to blatant misappropriation of money resources and manipulation of the whanau who they preport to advocating for. being from ngai tahu we have have had our share of dodgy dealers,

    I think every organisation has a morgan. my generation has lucked out but my moko are looking at a bright future regardless of the antics of our own who are hell bent on lining their own pockets, if all the iwi with in waikato / nz were given their lands back to administer themselves gee your moko could look to a brighter future,

    for example: 1 iwi has 5 marae who receive 20k each a year i was told they own the land where the university is, and the rental is 2mil a year, 100k from 2mil which leaves 1.9 mil mmmmmmmmmmmmm if only one could dream, mind you same iwi has a first fruit policy, how sad for the generations to come,

    I truly believe what goes around comes around, i enjoy this blog and thankyou for sending your talent our way, yes we will look after them

    cheers stuart

    Have you dumbasses ever heard the word ‘secondment’? I’m thinking not, because that would first require you to be employed and secondly requires someone else to value you. Flavell is on secondment – presumably she will go down there and learn how another successful and professional iwi organisation does things so she can come back with new ideas and approaches. Although when you read this blog you would wonder why anyone would want to come back and deal with you ignorant, stupid, bitter and twisted losers…But she will..

    I belong to all these Maori trusts through both parents being of Maori descent, and all I get is MAIL MAIL & more MAIL!! Blowassing about their successful treaty settlements! Maori trusts, Its another english crown endeavour organisation that answers to crown university educated – lawyers & accountants who will drain all its funds. WE NEED A FULL REVIEW OF TRIBAL MANAGEMENT!! WE NEED A FULL REVIEW OF TRIBAL AFFAIRS!!!. Rather than trusts that favour a small click of staff for payment while the rest of us are homeless in rentals. So much for duty of care management???

    Mr Pohio and all directors at TGH…. Two things I want to be clear on: $5 dollars hour on the dole with current unemployment levels nudging 17% is a totally unacceptable trade-off so you can rework your investment portfolio, when we have a billion dollar asset base earning a net profit of $45 million, that’s less than a 5% investment return. As an owner that’s shocking news its’ simply not good enough.

    Please continue with stage 3 of the new build by staggering the stages using a high level of project collaboration and going with what we can afford. Look at reducing your $21 million spend but maintain the current levels of whanau employment… This option is a non-negotiable social responsibility called Tainui ora.

    The other non-trade is TKI they’re the elected choice with democratic rights, I want you to get rid of the current restructure review. Think about it… You’ll succeed!

    Two… Yes I agree with you reworking our investment portfolio that’s plainly obvious. Combined we can create an environment that will bring about opportunities which will be advantageous to lifting the living standards for our people through long term employment and housing affordability the inland hub is assured.

    The other positive upside is we’ll help towards rebalancing our economy and build bridges for other investment partners to collaborate with us. So…If you wish to discuss which investments are golden opportunities now’s the time to make an appointment.

    However, If you fund Mr Morgan’s idea to invest in Kim.Coms internet programme when he’ under investigation by the FBI is just plain stupid. Inform Mr Morgan if he wants champaign dreams and caviar wishes he can fund the dream himself.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPdQWnnUqm0 Wonder whats involved in this deal? I find it hard to believe that there is any sincerity in these joint ventures with corporations or with the trust. Given that they refuse to employ existing Tainui professionals unless they come from certain families.
