CFMEU statement on the politically motivated arrest of union organiser 
John Lomax

The arrest of ACT CFMEU official John Lomax for trying to negotiate 
better pay and conditions for workers is an absolute disgrace, according 
to CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan. Mr Lomax was told 
by police that he was accused of forcing an employer to enter into an 
EBA and that as a result the employer suffered financial loss due to 
paying workers higher wages.  Mr Noonan said that the government was 
criminalising the work of unions. “The criminal jurisdiction is not the 
domain of industrial matters and this is nothing but another vicious 
political attack on unions and the right to defend and improve pay and 
conditions for working people.”
