    WA unionist: 'Don't ever sit back' - Green Left Weekly, Australia
    One hundred and seven members of the WA Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union employed by Leighton Kumagai (LKJV) to build the Perth to Mandurah rail line will face court on August 29 after the Howard government's Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC) served writs on them for striking in February. The workers took strike action to have their delegate reinstated after he was sacked for insisting that health and safety agreements were enforced. The workers face fines of up to $22,000 each; some of them face $28,600 fines.
