CFMEU Organiser Luke Collier (circled) was gaoled in Brisbane in December (2015) for numerous thuggery offences including assault.
Collier, who committed the crimes during a brawl with members of the Australia First Party in Brisbane is serving three months ahead of further charges pending from an assault in Sydney.
Of course it was criminal anarchist slackbastard himself who paid the CFMEU to attack a peaceful rally in Brisbane on May 2, 2014.
On May 2, 2014, members of the Australia First Party were protesting at the imprisonment of the Greek Golden Dawn Members of Parliament in a rally at South Brisbane when unionists took offence to the group’s use of an Eureka flag (above image). So perhaps the slackbastard would like to comment on the gaoling of his partner in crime? No doubt as a druggy Collier, squealed on his Union mates to secure a lighter sentence.
His royal slackness has connections with former Magpie ex-crim Andrew Krakouer. No wonder bastards follow the shady Woods.
Beware, Collier has form, Collier pleaded guilty in Sydney at Downing Street Local Court to assaulting his former partner. Charges were strangely dropped after a late night visit by a union official to the victim’s home. Thereafter she declined to give evidence. Domestic violence and CFMEU activities are hand in hand.
CFMEU construction division national secretary Dave Noonan was aware of Collier’s extracurricular activities and continues to retain Collier as a union member – for future useful activities as required.
The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is also awaiting Mr Collier’s release to charge him with intimidating inspectors from the Fair Work Building Industry Inspectorate, and with assault under NSW laws in the wake of revelations aired at the Heydon Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption. The matter was listed for a hearing on March 7 and 8 next week, before Collier’s incarceration.
Collier has been the subject of multiple allegations by the regulator, also known as Fair Work Building and Construction, which alleged he spat on and called one of the regulator’s female investigators a “f**king slut” at a Sydney worksite. Bizarrely, the FWBC claims it was unable to serve Collier after he relocated to WA following the incident.
The industrial umpire suspended Mr Collier’s right of entry permit last year after he failed to declare a string of prior convictions to the tribunal — Collier has been convicted for offences including theft, recklessly causing injury and criminal damage dating back to at least 2004.
Collier’s really brave CFMEU mate from Melbourne, Joe Myles, on the same day punched a 66-year-old man to the ground of the Red Brick Hotel, Woolloongabba in Brisbane. Myles continued to kick the senior gentleman while on the floor.
Myles appeared before the Brisbane Magistrates Court on June 11, 2015 facing charges of serious assault and affray. CFMEU paid for the court surety of $10,000 for Myles as well as paying for expensive defence lawyers – probably Julia’s disgraced Slaters. Is he in witness protection?
CFMEU’s imported Fihi Kivalu has been found to be corrupt. Then there’s the case of CFMEU thug John Perkovic, who threatened Fair Work Inspector Seamus Flynn. The following video was played at the Trade Union Royal Commission on the September 2, 2014.
Throw all the CFMEU official bastards in gaol! It’s about time the BLF-come-CFMEU was outlawed and disbanded. It’s no right to be called a trade union. The CFMEU is a criminal outlaw gang without motorbikes. It has the patches the club house, and all the other paraphernalia. It represents itself and thuggery and does the standover tactics of sly anarchists. Sounds like another OMCG. Didn’t the CFMEU sign a deal in 2012 with the Rebels Abuzar Sultani to win work on John Holland, Mirvac and Westfield building sites in Melbourne?
CFMEU is short for ‘Corruption Fraud Money Extorting Utards‘.
The law is closing in on union thuggery, intimidation and coercion. One of its gang members, Luke Collier, was jailed in Brisbane in December for two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm, common assault and affray and entering premises with intent to commit an indictable offence.
The revelation comes as the Director of the construction industry regulator, the Fair Work Building Industry Inspectorate, Nigel Hadgkiss, told Senate estimates of “an intolerable culture that prevails” in the CFMEU. He has said that he “..fully expects (CFMEU) behaviour to continue”.
Bring on the return of the Australian Building and Construction Commission.
