Construction Workers Targeted after Walkout

article_150x150_LongfordThe federal building sector watchdog, Fair Work Building and Construction has set aim at more than 50 Victorian construction workers for what they describe as disrupting a key infrastructure project in the state’s east.

The Australian Workers Union accused the Fair Work Building and Construction Inspectorate of “terrorising” and “intimidating” the 52 workers who walked off the site last year. Many of the workers were served legal notices at the homes over a weekend.

 

The workers have been threatened with a possible $10,800 fine, according to the AWU.

The union accused the watchdog of attacking the group in a manner that is meant to spread fear and increase distress.

The workers walked off a job site on February 12 last year and 50 failed to show up at work the next day. They were working on the Esso gas conditioning plant at Longford.
