Andrea Vance at Stuff reports:
An inquiry is under way at the troubled students’ association at the centre of fraud allegations over concerns that it owes up to $200,000 in unpaid tax.
Police are investigating after up to $1 million was drained from the bank accounts of the Porirua-based Whitireia Independent Students Association.
So WISA is acting just like UNITE – illegally keeping the PAYE from their employees. I imagine WISA has also campaigned on higher taxes to fund more student support. The irony.
It will be a great day when the VSM legislation is passed. Compulsory membership doesn’t provide any incentives for responsible management.
