I have arrived back in the country today and have consulted with union leaders who are concerned by Mr Setka’s words and actions, which are not compatible with our values, and have impacted on our movement.
The ACTU condemns all acts of family and domestic violence. Australian unions have made ending family and domestic violence a priority.
I have heard what Mr Setka had to say today. I have sought a meeting with him tomorrow to discuss these matters. I will have more to say following this meeting.
