Statement from CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan

The Trade Union Royal Commission today heard evidence of conflict between Fair Work Building Commission (FWBC) inspectors and construction workers and union officials on building sites. 

Swearing on building sites is nothing new and doesn’t warrant a $53 million Royal Commission. The greater scandal is that industry regulators have been asleep at the wheel.

Royal Commission a show trial with no main act.

The Brisbane leg of the Trade Union Royal Commission began with a display of bluster but spectacularly failed to back up any allegations against the CFMEU, the Union said today. 

“The Royal Commission came up to Brisbane full of swagger and hot air,” said CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan.

“The only explosive thing about these hearings has been the sound of Counsel Assisting’s ‘evidence’ being shot down.

“What we’ve seen is a show trial with no main act.”
