The CFMEU has fought tirelessly since the beginning of the pandemic to keep this industry open and safe, and this continues to be the priority of the union.
We have always supported freedom of choice regarding vaccination and have been consistent with this message.
Many members within our industry have decided to get the vaccine through their own personal choice, and we will represent members if their employment is affected.
We are not going to be intimidated by outside extremists attempting to intimidate the union, by spreading misinformation and lies about the union’s position.
The CFMEU will always advocate for safety, jobs, and freedom of choice.

“We are not going to let a group of morons like that intimidate the union.”
