Australian Constructor Association Welcomes Decision Supporting Rule of Law on Construction Sites

The Australian Constructors Association (ACA) said today the decision of the Victorian Supreme Court in the contempt proceedings against the CFMEU sends a strong message to the Senate to approve the legislation to re-establish the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC) and provide for a return to the regulatory system that worked well following the Cole Royal Commission.

Commenting on the decision, ACA Executive Director, Lindsay Le Compte, said ”The decision is again an example of the reason why there is an overriding need for the Parliament to pass the legislation introduced by the Federal Government to re-establish the (ABCC) and provide the legislative and administrative structure to enable the proper regulation of the industry”.

“It does not matter which way you look at it, this case, and other recent activity across the country, clearly reflects the findings of the Gyles and Cole Royal Commissions, and the more recent Inquiry by former Justice Wilcox, that the industry must have an effective
regulatory regime underpinned by strong and clear legislation that prevents unlawful activity from getting or maintaining a foothold,” Mr Le Compte said.
