A Federal Court Judge has slammed a lawsuit brought by the Fair Work Building Commission (FWBC) as an “abuse of process.”
CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan said “this confirms what the union has been saying for some time. Under Nigel Hadgkiss, the FWBC is not an impartial regulator. Rather, it is a partisan and political operation. ”
In 2013 John Holland sued the union. In 2014, that suit was settled by all parties. In spite of this, in 2015, the FWBC launched its own case dealing with the same matters.
