The CFMEU and its Canberra head are facing criminal charges laid by the competition watchdog for alleged cartel conduct. The charges bring the prospect of jail and millions in fines.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on Thursday say the CFMEU and ACT secretary Jason O’Mara attempted to “induce suppliers of steelfixing services and scaffolding services to reach cartel contracts, arrangements or understandings containing cartel provisions in relation to services provided to builders in the ACT in 2012 to 2013”.

The charges come after an investigation into the union by the ACCC and Australian Federal Police taskforce which was set up following the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.

The matter is scheduled to be heard on September 27 before the ACT Magistrates Court.
