CFMEU Fined almost $60,000 for SA Threats

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.

A union boss warned that the union would bring national industrial action against the contractors other projects.
