The CFMEU has written to every state and territory government calling for urgent audits to be undertaken on the use of a dangerous imported aluminium cladding product.
The product was used to cover the external walls of the Lacrosse Apartments Complex at Docklands in Melbourne, which caught alight last year. The cladding proved highly combustible, resulting in the rapid spread of fire. Four hundred people were evacuated from the building and were lucky to escape serious harm.
Experts believe the product has been used extensively used in buildings throughout the nation.
The trade union movement has called on governments at all levels to tackle the damaging effects of unrestrained Fly In Fly Out work practices in the resource industry.
A thousand delegates to the ACTU Congress – the union movement’s triennial decision-making body – endorsed a resolution noting the severe impacts of FIFO and calling for action.
The Queensland Government must make sure Adani’s proposed Carmichael mine delivers jobs and economic benefit to regional Queensland, the Miners Union said today.
CFMEU Mining and Energy Queensland President Stephen Smyth said the Adani CEO’s insistence the mine must be 100% FIFO was arrogant. (see http://www.dailymercury.com.au/news/no-option-except-100-fifo-says-adani-ceo/2649972/)
