COVID-19 ON-SITE GUIDELINES

 

While it's critical that we maintain public and private health standards for everyone in the community right now, the CFMEU believes that it is not in the interest of the West Australian construction industry, West Australian workers, or the West Australian people, for construction sites to be closed down, either partially or fully, due to COVID-19 at this time.

We're calling on the cooperation of all employers and workers to put in place a set of practices that will allow our industry to continue to function as positively as is possible during this crisis. We believe that this is in the clear interests of our members, our State and our country.

We're monitoring the situation and reviewing our position daily based on advice from all sources and directives from health professionals and the State and Federal Government. We will be updating our position regularly as things unfold.

Stay safe. Keep calm. Take sensible precautions. And let’s work together to get through this.

Every worker and every employer has a responsibility to play their part in adhering to these measures to keep our industry safe and operating

CFMEU WA Extended Office Hours

 

In response to the increased need for help and advice at the moment, CFMEU WA will be trialling extending our office hours to 6.30pm Mon-Thur for the next few weeks.

You can visit the office at 80 Beaufort St Perth or call us on (08) 9228 6900 between 8:00am and 6:30pm Monday to Thursday or between 8:00am and 5:00pm Friday.

We’ll have two Organisers available to take calls and answer any questions about workplace and industrial issues, COVID-19 and your rights, health and safety enquiries, and to process payments and update your member details as needed.

We’re working with both Government and Industry to try and ensure that construction in WA continues as well and as safely as possible during this time. We’re constantly reviewing our position and will let you know immediately of any directives or advice we receive regarding your safety.

We’re here if you need us.

Stay safe.
