Queensland builder unions oppose mandatory vaccination push

Four Queensland construction unions have announced they will fight any laws making COVID-19 vaccination mandatory on building sites.

CFMEU, ETU, AMWU and PPTEU have released a joint statement warning that such laws would remove the rights of workers to make “informed personal choices”.

Queensland construction unions will fight any laws making COVID-19 vaccination mandatory on building sites, it has been revealed, as the state ramps up vaccine pushes.

The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union, the Electrical Trades Union, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, and the Plumbing Trades Employees Union warn that such laws would remove the rights of workers to make “informed personal choices”.

Building unions say they strongly support the health advice and COVID-safe work sites, but they’re concerned that the Queensland government may be considering ‘No Jab, No Job’ laws.

“The Building Trades Group of Unions in no way underestimates the public health challenges in managing a deadly virus such as COVID-19, but punitive measures that create two classes of citizens is not a path out of this pandemic,” the group said in a joint statement:

Official press release.

“We strongly support and have followed the health advice that has helped keep Queenslanders safe and our members working, even during periods of restrictions and lockdown.

Ultimately though, medical decisions must be a matter for an individual acting on the advice of their doctor, and workers should not be punished for acting according to their own personal circumstances.”

Unions say they already have robust safety policies for work sites, such as staggered start, finish and break times, social distancing, cleaning and hygiene practices, mandatory face masks and testing.

The group said it was also open to discussing further safety measures with the Queensland government to make workplaces safer from the virus.

“We continue to work with employers and members to keep our industry safe, working and fully informed, but do not accept that coercive measures are part of any solution,” the unions said.

Any employer found to be illegally coercing workers however, will be dealt with by BTG unions to the full extent of the law.”

It’s great to see union groups standing up for the civil liberties of their members, as should be the function of groups like this, now sadly forgotten in an era of union corruption.

Corruption that is already seeing most other union groups, including the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), turning the opposite way and supporting the government.

These construction groups, however, will likely skyrocket in membership as more Queenslanders become pressured to take the vaccine or face a disruption to their current employment.


Workers entering Queensland from New South Wales will soon be required to have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination in order to get into the state.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced on Monday morning that the new rules come into effect on Friday for police, health workers, construction workers, truckies and others.

“Those few who are exempt – so that means those essential workers – they will be required from Friday to have had at least one dose of their vaccination,” the Premier said

Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young says police will be checking vaccination records at NSW road border checkpoints.

“We know the vast majority of people do the right thing, but there will be checks at the border,” she said in a statement.

“These restrictions are in place to ensure there is minimal movement over the border and everyone follows the right processes to keep Queenslanders and our community safe.”

Western Australia has also tightened its border restrictions for people arriving from New South Wales, requiring they show proof of having had least one COVID-19 vaccination.

As predicted mass vaccine coercion plans begin to manifest before our eyes, unions aren’t the only ones calling for a stand to these increased measures.

In fact, the workers themselves are calling for others to say ‘enough is enough’.



Each and every day we see the language clear as day: Don’t get the vaccine? You won’t be able to work, enjoy luxuries or life or even the ability to live freely moving forward.

However, as this push continues, more workers are taking a stand. Specifically in essential industries, such as construction or truck driving, where employees realise they are the backbone of Australia:

A good question: What would the so-called ‘powers that be’ do if the people decided to not comply with the continued restrictions across Australia?

This video, and others, follow protests by truckies in Sydney, where a convoy parked across the Harbour Bridge and ANZAC Bridge to oppose snap changes to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Soon after these scenes, restrictions were eased in Sydney to allow construction workers back on site. However, the NSW government says they require workers to have had 1 dose of vaccine.

This is where a union should step in to protect the rights of these workers.

Hence, we return to why it is such a great thing to see Queensland leading the way.

Informed medical choices should always be left to the individual, without the fear of coercion or economic uncertainty for making the decision to not have a vaccine.

Thankfully, some sane groups still remain in Australia.

Will you lobby your local union to join?

Will you make changes to your life to join those that will?

Some questions to ponder on as we conclude.

    1. A strong Transport Worker’s Union (TWU) would oppose also, yet displays weakness and has stated it will not support members who face unemployment because of this Government stance.

  1. this is great news. the gov plan to eventually mandate without actually mandating it by the use of industry/business and also by making air and ground travel between states impossible.

  2. hold on everyone for just 1 second…

    i’ve been following new feeds on totts without comment for a while but had to say something again

    why is no one, and i mean no one, including commentors here on totts are overlooking the actual fact that there is NO con-vid vaxx approved or authorised or licensed, not here or anywhere else on the planet. but everyone is arguing about whether to get vaxxed or not & why/why not it should be mandatory?

    SPC says all staff must get vaxxed, OK then, which vaxx has been approved in aus?

    qantas dickhead ceo, claims he will mandate vaxx for his staff, again what vaxx has been approved for him to say this?

    the govt ie; ScoMo, says its up to companies to decide. what the fuck does that mean dickhead?

    it’s either lawful or it is not, that’s it. if you don’t know, say so & let someone that does say it.

    the bigger thing being overlooked about the con-vid cases argument is that the PCR test is not fit for purpose as said by its inventor bc it all depends on the number of cycles that a sample of anything is run through the test. need more cases to push your agenda?, raise the cycles. need to show your restrictions are working? drop the cycles, simple. guess who bought the UK pcr test company… bill ‘fucking’ gates

    but… the biggest thing or CON being perpetrated is that con-vid19 has never, ever been isolated, ever! the PCR is dependent on corona type fragments that weren’t even taken from actual people believed to have con-vid. they were taken from monkeys & lab animals that were infected with human viruses that gave the so called scientists data for computer modelling that determined it was a new virus. fuck me, how fucking arrogant & sanctimonious are these leaches?

    sorry, but you’ve all been focussing on the micro details & have overlooked the blatantly obvious slight of hand where the propagandists have moved the narrative to exactly where they want it

    sure, the state govts will look like they are being tough on the supposed plandemic & have it out at national cabinet for shits & giggles just to appease the gen.pop. but the scam is working bc pro & anti vaxx sides are at eachothers throats on the yes or no jab debate

    we who know that this is all a game to get the gen. pop. vaxxed asap for whatever agenda is next on the greater plan for total obedience to our overlords have been doing our research since day 1.

    all the signs are there if you know how to see them. i’m not worried about whether the truth will come out one day bc the truth is already out in plain sight given by those same overlords that are pushing their agendas, yes agendas. convid is not the only game in town so wake up & take a wider, much wider perspective of what has happened, is happening & you will see where it will lead to more or less.

    follow the money is part of it, but also look at who is connected to whom. from the lowest shit kicker to the highest so called elite scum you believe is in charge. there are families, cults (religious groups), industries, ngo’s & of course govts that rely on all of them at the same time or individually, they are all connected by faith, money, greed, blackmail, threat of exposure/death or just fucking psycho.

    there are always ways around any rules or restrictions, always! find a non-compliant doctor/pharmacist/nurse for the vaxx & get your vaxx recorded without being vaxxed. pay them, help them, date them, whatever you can get away with. then you’re free to flaunt your immunity without being poisoned.

    there’s a million more things i want to say but not enough time to say it in 1 post
