The CFMEU has led a rally of workers and contractors outside the office of JHC Constructions, which has shut down owing over $100,000 in wages.
Workers are also owed up to four years superannuation contributions. Contractors who completed work for JHC are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The major loose furniture contract for the $200 million Federal and State Government funded South Australian Medical Health and Research Institute in Adelaide’s CBD has reportedly been awarded to an offshore furniture manufacturer, despite local companies tendering for the work.
The Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union said the news highlighted the need for government action to ensure taxpayer-funded projects used Australian made products wherever possible, maximising the benefits for the local economy.
