It is with great sadness that the Executive reports the death of the first black President of the Republic of South Africa, Mr Nelson Mandela.
The Executive and Members of the Union, extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to Mr Mandela's family and to the people of South Africa, who have lost a great and unifying leader.
The CFMEU will be protesting outside the offices of John Holland today around the country in relation to unpaid wages for 200 workers from the Urban Superway project in South Australia.
The workers, who were employed by a sub contractor who has gone missing, are owed more than $750,000 in lost wages, superannuation, annual leave and other entitlements. Workers who had child support arrangements had the money taken out of their pay, that never went to their children.
A delegation of CFMEU Pulp and Paper Workers from Tasmania, Melbourne, Gippsland, Shoalhaven and Millicent will travel to Parliament House today to brief their local MPs on challenges to their job security. Workers will seek the MPs support as part of their 'Don't Shred Pulp and Paper Jobs' initiative, a part of the CFMEU's 'Let’s Spread it Around Campaign'.
Alex Millar, National Secretary of the CFMEU’s Pulp and Paper Worker’s District, is leading the delegation in asking local MPs to sign a pledge to set the right example to the community by buying Australian made paper and paper products for their offices and personal use.
