Industrial Action and Unions
Industrial Action and Union Advice For Employers. The Building and Construction Industry is significantly different from the community with powerful Unions including the CFMEU, CEPU, ETU, AWU, AMWU and others. We assist Construction Employers, Contractors and Major Projects with questions, compliance advice and Workplace Relations Management Plans.
We provide strategic advice, market advice and training for your project.
Industrial action can include:
- employees going on strike.
- employees imposing work bans, restrictions or strikes.
- employees blocking access, deliveries or work to rule.
Industrial action is commonly mixed with WHS issues and site management or subcontractor pressures.
