CFMEU condemns mob occupation of Shrine

Published: 22 Sep 2021

The CFMEU Construction and General Division condemns yesterday’s use of the Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance by a mob demonstrating against vaccination.

“The Shrine commemorates those who served their country in armed conflict and at war.”

“These actions are not supported by the vast majority of union members in the construction industry nor the Australian community.”

“Those who occupied the Shrine should be ashamed of themselves.”

“They should reflect on the sacrifices of others and cease these mindless and destructive mob actions.”

Dave Noonan, CFMEU National Construction Secretary
