Construction Workers Take a Stand for Safety

The alleged lack of action following the death of construction veteran Jorge Catillo-Riffo, prompted CFMEU members to gather at parliament house in Adelaide on February 15.

Around 200 of the union’s members congregated outside following the dropping of charges against the company contracted to  build the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. Jorge was one of 2 workers killed at the site.

The union said that since 2014, 3 workers were killed on the company’s sites in South Australia.

The union highlighted that while the company managed to avoid punishment for Jorge’s death, the union had received more than $1 million in fines in South Australia, many of the fines relating to safety inspections as perceived at risk work sites.
