Royal Commission into the AWU

If you believe that Unions should be held to account for monies entrusted to them by thier members, that are then misappropriated? That said actions by persons involved need to held accountable & exposed fully? Is what we are witnessing now on a daily basis, cause for you to question Ms Gillard and Co's actions regarding her level of involvement in the AWU & AWU Workplace Reform Association?

Do you believe this union is beyond the law of the land and by association potential criminal activity needs to be properly investigated?

Then the only instrument open to resolve the complex, systematic & long term activities of this Union is to call for and institute a Royal Commission to remove the stigma now inflicting the entire Union movement and broader political sphere in Australia. There are now to many questions, documents and evidential briefs in the public domain to continue to sweep this type alleged corruption under the carpet.

If any ordinary person/company was to defraud anyone of many hundreds of thousands of dollars for their own personal purposes, your or they would be before the courts quicker than you could imagine. No matter the position or perceived positions of power should not be allowed to believe they are above the law. Conduct of this type needs to be exposed and persons involved be held accountable for their actions either by omission or commission. The appalling activities alone constitute an appalling breach of the various laws of Australia. We expect our leaders, whether it be in a Union or Company and or Government to act with honesty and integrity and when this is found to be wanting we must have these persons be accountable. Only a Royal Commission has the scope and powers to compel the truth to be brought forth to the Australian Citizenry, to whom these responsible parties are ultimately accountable to.

This is a grass roots call for ordinary Australians to call for a Royal Commission and to send both sides of Parliament a clear message that you require something to be done, not just platitudes and worthless words. Australians expect and demand action. Demand a Royal Commission in the activities of The AWU.
