Construction Workers Down Tools, Union Faces Court Action


Following the August 19th downing of tools on 6 construction sites operated by a construction company, 3 CFMEU representatives are facing fines of up to $10 800 per breach for 50 alleged breaches of the Fair Work Act.

The union representatives apparently instructed workers to walk off site and not return until Monday because the company had employed subcontractors that didn’t have union¬†enterprise bargaining agreements.

Nigel Hadgkiss of Fair Work Building and Construction said it was not fair to discriminate against subcontractors based on workplace agreements.
