We can confirm that the hearing this morning in the Federal Court in Brisbane resulted in a continuation of the injunction secured in relation to the warrant that was executed at the CFMEU Queensland Construction Branch on November 19.
The Australian Federal Police attached to the Trade Union Royal Commission Police Taskforce must also provide material to the CFMEU which was given to the magistrate who issued the warrant.
The matter has been listed for further hearing for December 7, 2015.
Over 100 security guards for Rio Tinto in Madagascar have won a three week strike, a first step toward addressing poor working conditions for contactors at the mine.
The workers, employed by Pro Tech Security to guard Rio Tinto's QMM ilmenite mine, struck in response to the firing of two guards who are leaders of IndustriALL affiliate FISEMA. Strikers demanded that the two union leaders be reinstated and that a manager who routinely verbally abused workers and their families be dismissed.
We can confirm that the CFMEU secured an injunction in relation to the warrant that was executed at the Queensland branch yesterday, by the Trade Union Royal Commission Police Taskforce.
The Federal Court handed down the decision in Brisbane this morning and the matter has been listed for further hearing next Tuesday 24th November.
