ABCC Bill Passes through the Senate:
As the peak industry body representing the Civil Construction industry, CCF welcomed the passing of the Bill in the Senate in late November 2016, that that will see the reinstatement of the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC).
CCF has a policy supporting the presence of a strong ABCC. It is well documented that the gains made during the first iteration of the ABCC were substantial and served to ensure that all sides of industry were on notice to behave in a far more acceptable manner in conducting business.
The CCF believes the timing of the reintroduction of the ABCC could not have been better, coinciding with the recent announcement by the Federal Government to increase infrastructure investment to a record $80 billion to fund the 15 year Australian Infrastructure Plan.
