IR laws used against strikers

MANDURAH rail line workers face fines for up to $28,000 each for striking, following the Australian Building and Construction Commission’s first use of its new powers. The new building industry watchdog lodged writs against 107 of the 403 workers who walked off the job in late February to protest against the sacking of union shop steward Peter Ballard. ABCC commissioner John Lloyd said the writs were an example to other workers in the industry that the watchdog was serious about implementing new laws. Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union secretary Kevin Reynolds said the action was part of the federal government’s determination to destroy unions.
