    Construction workers face hefty fines after strike action - Reporter: Jennifer Macey, ABC Online, Australia
    In Western Australia, the Federal Government's new building industry watchdog is flexing its muscles against more than a 100 workers who went on strike against the advice of their union.

    The construction workers could each face fines of up to $28,000 in the first prosecution of individual workers under the Federal Government's new building industry laws.

    The 107 workers walked off Perth's southern rail project in February for a week after a shop steward was sacked.
