The CFMEU has called on Fair Work Building and Construction (FWBC) Director Nigel Hadgkiss to go to the police with allegations that female FWBC staff were threatened with rape.

These allegations were first raised by Mr Hadgkiss in a Senate Estimates Committee hearing three weeks ago, and were repeated by Senator Abetz in Federal Parliament yesterday (Senate Question Time).
