Clark: Merger of CFMEU and MUA

Merger of CFMEU and MUA

If this merger goes ahead, it will be bad news for Victoria.

It will bring together two militant unions that treat the law with contempt and cost jobs and opportunities around the country.

Labor force figures released this week show that Victoria has lost 7,800 jobs since Daniel Andrews took office 10 months ago. Victoria needs conditions that will allow it to grow jobs, not shed jobs.

Premier Daniel Andrews has already shown he can’t or won’t stand up to the CFMEU, and if these unions merge he will be even more under their thumb.
