Cfmeu Agreement

Despite the outcome of the appeal in favour of Ron Southon, this decision by Full Bench confirms that a member of the Commission is not obliged to hear arguments from a non-negotiating representative against the approval of an agreement. The union appealed Commissioner Cirkovic`s decision to approve the deal for several reasons, summing up as the Commissioner: The Master Builders Association said the votes were a “historic turning point” for the CFMEU-dominated sector and followed unprecedented employer opposition to the union`s controversial new deal last year. CFMEU then indicated that it had no members to cover by the proposed agreement, but that it wished to be consulted on the matter for the above reasons. .
