Yesterday The Fair Go explained how unions bleed funds out of your retirement to fund their political campaigns – if you missed it be sure to take a look!
But how do they use that money? Here are five examples of ways they are frittering away your nest egg:
- When the CFMEU illegally blockaded a Victorian building company and ended up paying $3.55 million in damages.
CFMEU National Secretary Dave Noonan admitted, that “the union was “well resourced” to pay the fines” but that “it’s not a great use of members’ money”. Source image: ABC
The union had shown a “disregard or contempt for the rule of law”, the court said.
2. When John Sutton, national secretary of the construction division of the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union, kicked and spat on managers’ cars.
