The Victorian division of the CFMEU and its officials were fined a total of $A1.12m by the Federal Court in 2017, while the state accounted for 36 per cent of court-imposed penalties across the nation. Meanwhile, the Australian Building & Construction Commission commenced 38 separate investigation into alleged breaches of workplace laws in the state’s construction industry during the year. This included 16 cases of alleged coercion of building firms and five breaches of laws regarding unions’ right of entry.
