Ark Tribe not Guilty, but the ABCC Still Has Enormous Power Over Building Workers – Two Interviews

Building worker and unionist Ark Tribe was found not guilty last week of failing to attend a hearing of the Australian Building and Construction Commission. Tribe was summoned to give information about a safety meeting on an Adelaide building site in 2008, but the ABCC failed to follow proper procedures, leading to the not guilty verdict. Tribe’s lawyer, Michael Abbott QC, spoke to David Jackmanson about the verdict.

The current laws allow the ABCC to summon building workers to hearings where they have no right to silence and may face six month’s jail for refusing to attend. David Jackmanson also spoke to the National Secretary of the Construction Division of the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union, Dave Noonan, about how his union wants these laws to be abolished.
