On 13 November 2013 it was raining heavily in Melbourne and construction sites across the city observed inclement weather rules. Meanwhile at the Victorian Cancer Centre site in Parkville, Grocon was forcing workers into an all-day concrete pour.
Construction workers and their union will be on the streets of Melbourne today for a different kind of cause when they take part in the White Ribbon Day activities.
As part of a nation wide campaign led by the CFMEU in the construction industry, the Victorian branch will be volunteering as marshalls in today’s walk in order to show leadership on a very important issue.
White Ribbon flags will also be flying on most CBD construction sites.
