CFMEU rally to protect worker - Ark Tribe

ABOLISH THE ABCC

Construction workers are being harassed by the ABCC, over efforts to fix safety problems on jobs.

Ark Tribe is a rigger and rank and file member of the CFMEU in South Australia. He was working on the Hindmarsh job at Flinders University when a safety dispute arose last year.

Ark was summoned for questioning by the ABCC.

The ABCC has now decided to charge Ark with an offence of failing to attend the interview at the appointed time.

Ark has to front court to defend the unreasonable charges.

If he has had done something wrong, he is prepared to cop it, but he will not be treated unfairly.

Ark Tribe is to face court of the 30th October 2009 for the third time. If found guilty of not subjecting himself to the ABCC’s interrogations, Ark can find himself in jail for six months.

Demand an end to Federal Government laws that undermine safety and stop unions from looking after their members.

Support Ark, join the Sydney protest:

Time: 11.00 am

Date: Friday, 30th October 2009

Assembly point: Trades Hall Auditorium,

377 Sussex Street, Sydney

Speakers: Mark Lennon (Secretary, Unions NSW), John Sutton (CFMEU) and Lee Rhiannon (The Greens)

This is an unofficial site at this stage.

It is run by Darin Sullivan, State President of FBEU.

The FBEU was formed in an era when a number of important unions were being established. Workers in Australia had come to realise that their only hope of achieving a better quality of life was by joining together in an association representative of their common interests.

Our Union has pursued those goals originally set by our founding members and because we have not adopted a narrow parochial approach, realising that national and international questions would impact on firefighters' future welfare, the Union is held in high esteem within the Trade Union Movement.

The leadership of the Union and their principal adversary, the management of the NSW Fire Brigades, have changed over the last 99 years, and there have been many bitter struggles, but the relative positions of both parties have not changed.

The Union continues to seek better conditions of employment and job satisfaction for its members, and the Fire Brigade endeavours to fulfil its responsibilities in providing fire protection for the community at the cheapest possible price and so, the class struggle between the worker and employer continues...
