Board won't be rushed by union muscle

8 February 2022

The Master Builders Queensland Board won’t be coerced by today’s impromptu CFMEU march, targeting Master Builders Queensland offices in Spring Hill.

Master Builders has expressed disappointment in what is an apparent power play by the building union. It is an attempt to influence and rush the Board’s decision regarding the re-appointment of employer representatives to the BUSSQ Board.

Master Builders is currently considering professional and legal advice on the best way forward to represent the interests of fund members, since the resignation of three Master Builders representatives from the BUSSQ Board last month.

Our top priority, and one that we are taking extremely seriously as a shareholder, is to work with the appropriate stakeholders as quickly as possible to ensure the best outcome for BUSSQ members, Master Builders members as a whole, and stability for the broader industry.

The Queensland building and construction industry and its workforce are at the heart of the Queensland economy and responsible for driving the Queensland economy during our post-COVID recovery.

Part of supporting the role the industry and its workers play is providing a stable environment so they can get on with the job and do what they do best. With so much uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the last thing the industry needs now is unnecessary agitation and worry.
