Major Hospital Action Lands Construction Union $277k fine

The CFMEU and 7 of its officials have been slapped with a $277,000 fine after being found guilty of illegally blockading the work site of a major construction site.

The court handed down the fine after it found the union guilty over conduct involving illegal blockades at the Perth Children’s Hospital Project.

During one protest, 400 people blockaded the site’s main entrance, preventing a large concrete pour to take place as scheduled, involving 45 trucks.

The cause of the action was because the head contractor failed to agree to a demand for a “whole of site” enterprise bargaining agreement.

In another incident, the union organised a blockade, preventing around 200 workers from entering the site.

In a third incident, a CFMEU official attempted to prevent workers from entering the site by using physical restraint. See more at https://sourceable.net/cfmeu-fined-277k-for-major-hospital-blockade/
