Weighty Issues

Wharfies at Port Botany weigh up for the Biggest Loser

Around 20 waterside workers at DP World, Port Botany today stripped down to their jocks and weighed up for the start of The Biggest Loser.

MUA members in the comp are provided three months personal training by the company - running, cycling and gym workouts. And, just like on TV the man or woman who sheds the most kilos wins.  But the prize goes to charity and the film goes to YouTube.

MUA Sydney Branch Secretary Paul McAleer was there to pledge the unions support with Jamie McMechan, MUA film unit keeping the cameras rolling.

"It's a great thing," said Paul.  "That's want we want to see  - a fighting fit membership."
