CFMEU Executive: Ark's fight is our fight!

The CFMEU Construction and General Division have today pledged to fight fresh charges laid by the Australian Building Construction Commission (ABCC) against South Australian construction worker, Ark Tribe.

At a meeting of the union’s executive in Sydney, all branches closed ranks around Mr Tribe, who allegedly failed to attend a compulsory interrogation by the ABCC in 2008.

Under the Federal Government industrial relations laws, construction workers like Mr Tribe can be fined up to $22,000 each for stopping work or jailed for up to 6months for refusing to answer questions about a union meeting.
