Stephen McBurney gets ABCC War on Workers position

A new head of the Australian Building and Construction Commission has been appointed to replace Nigel Hadgkiss who resigned in September after admitting he contravened the Fair Work Act.

Stephen McBurney will begin a five-year term as commissioner from 6 February.

McBurney served as an assistant commissioner for the the Howard government anti-trade union ABCC from 2006 to 2008.

Another fat cat position for the Turnbull government in its War on Workers.
