Boosting ABCC Funding is the Only Way to Combat Construction Thuggery: CCIQ

Wednesday 12 December, 2018 | By: Dan Petrie

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) welcomes the latest announcement by the Federal Government of $4 million in funding to bolster the resourcing powers of the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC).

CCIQ, in representing its members in the building industry, too often face officials from construction unions turning up to worksites unannounced demanding entry with little or no notice at all.

CCIQ Head of Industry, Dan Petrie said the ABCC fulfils a vital role in ensuring construction firms are not only compliant, but carry out projects without the threat of intimidation or costly delays.

“The simple fact is that the construction industry remains the most challenging industry in terms of applying laws where lawlessness, coercion and indeed bullying are dealt with appropriately.

“The ABCC should not be a political football and the commission should be allowed to continue its work so that the construction sector can continue to prosper,” Mr Petrie said.

CCIQ notes that with $45 billion of infrastructure projects slated for Queensland over the next four years it is incumbent upon policy makers to ensure the construction industry can deliver for all Queenslanders, instead of a narrow group of vested interests.
