The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union has backed embattled Victorian state secretary John Setka. The union has released a joint statement by its construction division’s national secretary Dave Noonan and president Jade Ingham, in which they state that Setka has the full support of the CFMMEU’s construction and general division. They also stated that Setka had not denigrated anti-domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty during a meeting of the union’s national executive. The ACTU maintains that Setka must resign.
