STOP INDIAN TRADE TALKS TO STOP ASBESTOS PROBLEM BECOMING WORSE: CFMEU

The CFMEU is calling for an urgent halt to the Government’s free trade talks with India due to the risk of even more deadly asbestos flooding into Australia. 

The union has written to Trade Minister Steven Ciobo calling for an immediate and urgent suspension of negotiations. 

The call follows the spike of imported building products from China including asbestos contaminated roof panels discovered during the construction of a children’s hospital in Perth.

STATEMENT FROM THE CFMEU REGARDING ACCC SEARCH OF ACT BRANCH

“The CFMEU can confirm that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission this morning executed a search warrant seeking documents in relation to the Competition and Consumer Act.

This appears to follow from a case study conducted by the Heydon Royal Commission. It should be noted that the Royal Commission was unable to conclude that the CFMEU had breached the Competition and Consumer Act.
