CFMMEU officials penalised $282,200 over Palmerston Police Station intimidation

Australian Building and Construction Commission

The Federal Court has penalised the CFMMEU and three of its officials $282,200 for attempting to shut down construction at the Palmerston Police Station site in May 2018.

At the time, the three CFMMEU officials demanded work stop on the $30 million law and order and community safety facility.

The Court found that when NT Worksafe officers arrived at the site, two of the CFMMEU officials – Arturo Menon and Roland Cummins behaved in an improper manner towards the officers.

In attempting to shut the site down Mr Menon falsely told workers they were entitled to go home on full pay.
