Construction workers belonging to the nation’s largest construction union have taken to the streets of Melbourne to protest the federal government’s plan to reintroduce the Australian Building and Construction Commission, changes to the Building code and possible reductions in penalty rates, which the union says will put workers lives at risk.

The CFMEU intends to protest the proposed building laws around the country and disrupt major Victorian government projects.

The union is also protesting over the use of 457 Visa workers on state building projects.
