Grocon Dispute Update

When it comes to safety, the CFMEU won’t blink.

On Sunday, the CFMEU settled the  legal proceedings with Grocon over the Myer Emporium dispute after  they approached us for conciliation.

This settlement will bring to an end all of Grocon’s claims against the union for damages and costs arising from that dispute.

The settlement of $3.55 million will be paid to Grocon’s lawyers to cover legal costs and it is expressly without any admission of liability. Not one cent will go to Grocon.
