RIP Bobby

CFMEU Officials have been onsite supporting Members struggling through the tragic death of Bobby Hetherington on 15 February 2016.

We have worked with Worksafe and the Builder to learn from what happened and prevent a tragic repeat.

Meanwhile the FWBC have shown their disgusting attitude towards workers in our industry once again. The day after Bobby was killed, inspectors entered the site - only interested in whether Union officials had breached right of entry laws.

This is the disgraceful mentality of inspectors who would become the ABCC ‘cops on the beat’ if Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals get their way.

Sign the petition to stop the ABCC

The CFMEU is Australia's main trade union in construction, forestry and furnishing products, mining and energy production.
