Genovese clears final hurdle after court rejects Lend Lease appeal bid

Lend Lease’s latest attempt to stop CFMEU delegate Peter Genovese returning to work at Barangaroo has failed.

The Fair Work Commission has rejected Lend Lease’s bid to appeal its original decision to order Genovese’s return to work at Barangaroo on January 28.

Originally stood down by Lend Lease on March 26 last year, Genovese, with the CFMEU’s support, has been fighting since the middle of 2014 for his right to return to work.

Yesterday’s decision should mark the end of the saga.

Genovese says he is “glad to know that part of my life is over”.
