Support Ark Tribe: Rally Notice

Ark Tribe RallyConstruction workers are being harassed by the ABCC, over efforts to fix safety problems on jobs.

Time: 10:00 am
Date: Thursday, 22 July 2010
Assembly point: Roma Street Forum, Brisbane

Ark Tribe is a rigger and rank and file member of the CFMEU in South Australia. He was working on the Hindmarsh job at Flinders University when a safety dispute arose last year.

Ark was summoned for questioning by the ABCC.

The ABCC has now decided to charge Ark with an offence of failing to attend the interview at the appointed time.

Ark has to front court to defend the unreasonable charges.

If he has done something wrong, he is prepared to cop it, but he will not be treated unfairly.

Ark Tribe is to face court of the 20th, 21st & 22nd July 2010 for the fifth time. If found guilty of not subjecting himself to the ABCC’s interrogations, Ark could find himself in jail for six months.

Construction workers deserve the same rights as other workers.

Demand an end to Federal Government laws that undermine safety and stop unions from looking after their members.
