The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union’s mining and energy division has attacked John Setka’s Victorian construction division over its poaching of members from the CFMMEU’s manufacturing division. The manufacturing division is headed up by Michael O’Connor, who is also the CFMMEU’s national secretary. The relationship between O’Connor and Setka is understood to have become strained over O’Connor’s failure to publicly support Setka, after the ACTU called on Setka to stand down after he was convicted for harassing his wife.
