Unions Planned Strikes against Contractor Banned

281916-cfmeu-marchThe Fair Work Building Commission has successfully brought an injunction against the CFMEU in Federal Court, temporarily banning a planned month long spate of strikes outside sites run by a major Brisbane builder.

The watchdog alleges several CFMEU officials targeted 9 of the builders’ sites and disrupted work 15 times in the last few months.

The union has been accused of disrupting crucial works on sites such as concrete pouring by conducting meetings without notice, lasting 2 hours. Workers are permitted to attend these “information meetings” as part of their enterprise bargaining agreement.

The dispute between the union and the builders revolves around the builder not consulting with the union and using non-EBA subcontractors.

The injunction was for a limited time only and expired on October 11, at 4:15pm.
