Statement from CFMEU re: announcement of joint taskforce to investigate criminal activity in the construction industry and unions

The CFMEU has no tolerance for corruption and has consistently said it will cooperate with any police investigation into criminal activity in the construction industry.

In January 2014, the CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan wrote to Victorian Police Commissioner, Ken Lay and NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, expressing the union’s willingness to assist the police in their work.

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.
