Labor abolishes building industry watchdog

Today’s Herald-Sun editorial has rightly condemned Daniel Andrews’ sneaky abolition of Victoria’s building industry watchdog – revealed in the final sentence of a press release about whooping cough.

Abolishing the watchdog will give open season to thuggery and lawlessness in the Victorian building industry and add millions of dollars to the cost of taxpayer funded building projects.

The Construction Code Compliance Unit and the building industry code were introduced to prevent and protect against lawlessness on building sites. Now Daniel Andrews’ CFMEU mates know the watchdog is gone.
