ACCC & Commonwealth DPP - new whistleblower portal & immunities for cartel-busting, incl in construction industry
One of the granddaddies of them all was Thiess and the AWU during the 1990s. With the corrupt AWU chief Bruce Wilson's support, Thiess avoided any competitive process for the award of a $60M WA Government contract - The Dawesville Channel. At the same time, Wilson's corrupt slush fund received $300K from Thiess, and his heavily indebted AWU Branch ($700K in the red for that year) made a $110K donation to Labor Premier Carmen Lawrence's election campaign.
PS - I am pleased to report to you that I am now in a useful dialogue with the CDPP over one aspect of the Thiess/AWU corrupt payment scandal. I'll let you know more as soon as it's prudent to do so.
