You can understand why the union sees no need for contrition or to apply corrective behaviour. The complete disregard for the law by the unions will continue until such time as the size of these peppercorn penalties are increased by a magnitude of at least 100. Make it $500 000 and create a real disincentive.

Now let's play the game, "what would have happened in this instance *if* that contractor had told its employees they were NOT permitted to join a union...?" That's right, Howes, Wood, would have been braying for company officers' heads on a platter. But instead, CFMEU lies and attempts to intimidate a contractor and what do they get? A slap on the wrist without having to admit any wrongdoing whatsoever. Hey guys, if you had a clue, you might take a moment to introspect on this and consider why so many people on the other side of the political spectrum from you view the things you do in such an unfavorable light. Just sayin... But I know you won't, and you'll keep on thinking how great you are even as Federal ALP sees a redux of what happened in QLD just recently when voters go to the polls next year. Enjoy the coming avalanche.
