The CFMEU does not tolerate corruption in its ranks. It is on the public record that the leadership will not stand by anyone who is not acting in the best interests of the members and any official found to be engaging in corrupt activity will be stood down. It takes allegations of any such behavior seriously and has no hesitation to act when credible evidence is produced that officials have acted with impropriety.

Disturbing claims of 457 visa abuse and sham contracting must be investigated

Claims of sham contracting and 457 visa abuse made in the trade union royal commission must be thoroughly investigated, the CFMEU said today. 

A former employee of Lis-Con, one of the companies appearing in the commission, has come forward with disturbing allegations including immigration fraud, tax fraud, bullying and intimidation. 

“Here we have a whistleblower shining a light on systematic exploitation of overseas workers and rorting of Australia’s skilled migration scheme,” said CFMEU Construction Secretary Dave Noonan.
