The largest construction union has been ordered to pay a fine of almost $60,000 after threatening to bring down “Armageddon” on a site if the South Australian contractor enforced a legal order.
The CFMEU and 2 of its bosses were ordered to pay $57,500 for intimidating threats made to the head contractor of the Royal Adelaide Hospital’s construction site. The ruling was made in the Federal Court recently.
The contractor was threatened by the union in 2013 not to enforce a Fair Work Commission order which required employees on the project not to take industrial action.
A union boss warned that the union would bring national industrial action against the contractors other projects.
