MEDIA ALERT: Bondi Pavilion Green Ban to remain until real consultation delivered

The construction union has cast doubt on Waverley Council’s commitment to community consultation over its plans for Bondi Pavilion.

The CFMEU, which has placed a Green Ban on the redevelopment of the iconic beachside landmark, has concerns over the appointment of consultants to run community consultations.

“The appointment of KJA consultants to run the community consultation smacks of a whitewash,” said CFMEU President Rita Mallia.

MEDIA ALERT: CFMEU throws weight behind Chinese members’ outrage over Olympics bias

Chinese-Australian members of the CFMEU will join a vigil outside Channel Seven’s Martin Place studios today to protest what they say is discriminatory coverage by the Olympics broadcaster.

CFMEU Organiser Yu Lei Zhou said Seven had outraged members of the Chinese community in Sydney with its ignorance and discrimination against the Chinese team competing at the Games.

During the Opening Ceremony broadcast on Saturday, Channel Seven cut to an ad break just as the 416-strong Chinese team was about to enter the stadium.
