CFMEU’s industry partner and redundancy fund, Incolink is utilising their health buses to test construction workers for COVID-19 under a new initiative supported by the State Government.
Onsite testing commences tomorrow, Wednesday 29th April at Multiplex’s Melbourne Square, the site which had the second confirmed case of COVID-19 in the industry.
To welcome the initiative, CFMEU VIC/TAS Secretary John Setka will be one of the first from the construction industry to receive a test via the new mobile health buses, with full details listed below.
Mr. Setka stresses the importance of this momentous initiative in supporting the health of workers and the construction industry during this time:
“CFMEU VIC/TAS will continue to support any initiative that further protects the safety of construction workers whilst our industry continues to help rebuild the country’s economy. We are proud to support Incolink to extend the use of their health buses to test for COVID-19 and I encourage all members to utilise this great tool to ensure their safety”
Incolink’s health bus is supported by a range of industry partners in addition to the CFMEU VIC/TAS, including the PPTEU, ETU, Cbus, MBV and CoINVEST.
