The CFMEU has called upon the Federal Government to intervene in the national construction crisis, and save $2.1 billion through the harmonisation of construction laws. The union has identified three key recommendations the Federal Government should adopt to solve the national crisis in construction.

  1. To prevent enormous waste in government infrastructure spend, the Federal government should require jurisdictions to demonstrate informed purchaser capacity in delivery of projects they are funded
  2. Federal intervention to harmonise construction laws nationally could save taxpayers a further $2.1 billion in defects and administrative
  3. Federal funding should be contingent on jurisdictions having an appropriate prequalification regime which accounts for past performance against safety, worker’s entitlements and wages and the delivery of government projects on time, and on jurisdictions having an appropriate prequalification regime which accounts for past performance against safety, worker’s entitlements and wages and the delivery of government projects on time, and on budget.
