ETU members across the construction sector are raising money and awareness around site safety after five construction workers were killed on Sydney construction sites over the past three weeks.
ETU Recruitment Officer, Mick Hopper said that ETU members were paying their respects to those workers that have lost their lives on construction sites by wearing black arm bands and observing a minute silence at meetings held across sites this week.
“Over the past three weeks we have seen five guys lose their lives on Sydney construction sites.” Said Mick Hopper.
“That is five men to many and five men that did not go home to their families which is unacceptable.
“ETU members are paying their respects and raising awareness about site safety at the same time to make sure no one else is tragically killed.” Mick Hopper said.
“I want to make sure every single ETU member goes home safe each day and our union will not tolerate dodgy bosses who take short cuts when it comes to OHS.”
“If any member has any concerns about safety they should immediately notify the ETU who will attend site and respond to concerns.” said Mick.
