cashAccording to Employment Minister Michaelia Cash, the number of days lost to industrial action due to the construction union is evident of the fact that the construction watchdog needs to be reinstated.

Minister Cash says there is a need to bring back the Australian Building and Construction Commission in order to tackle rogue unions.

She highlighted the more than 100 representatives of the CFMEU who appeared before the courts in recent years, with more than $8.25 million in fines being imposed on the union and its officials.

She also reminds us that the rate of industrial action in the construction sector is 5 times higher than the average across all industries.
