The Australian Building & Construction Commission has failed in its bid to have construction union official Alex Tadic personally pay a $7,500 fine for breaching workplace laws. Justice Richard Tracey said that courts can take into account whether a union official has consistently breached workplace laws in the past. He ruled that the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union should pay the fines of Tadic and another official. The union itself was fined $245,000.
