Federal Court judge Geoffrey Flick has described the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy Union as a "recidivist offender" after finding that it had engaged in unlawful industrial action. The militant union and eight of its officials have been fined more than $A2.4m in total over the industrial action at Sydney’s Barangaroo development in 2014. Justice Flick has also referred four CFMEU officials to the director of Public Prosecutions for possible further legal action over claims that they gave false testimony to the court.
