Levy to defend the union- Letter to members

Dear Member,

The CFMEU has successfully negotiated high standard EBAs over recent years in Victoria.  We’re now committed to inproving wages and conditions in Tasmania.

Unfortunately, politicians and employer groups want to pursue their ideological agenda to undermine workers’ wages and conditions.  Therefore, the CFMEU has decided to campaign nationally against conservative anti-union governments, promoting the need for real OHS standards and defending the Union against endless attacks.
