CFMEU VIC & MBAV: Joint statement addressing the roadmap released by the Victorian Government

September 7, 2020

“Since March, we have been committed to lead workers safely through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority has always been to protect the safety and livelihoods of our members, their families, and the broader community.

The roadmap announced today is a good start to getting workers back to work with a clear plan to return to full capacity.

The safety measures we have in place are there for the protection of all construction workers, and we are confident we can continue to do just that, so with a clear road map, we will lead the recovery of the Victorian economy.

– John Setka
