HSU SCANDAL: Fair Work Australia president cracks down on corruption, delay

The poor performance of HSU boss Kathy Jackson’s lover Michael Lawler – the Vice-President of Fair Work Australia – is believed to be the catalyst for a new code of conduct introduced by the President of FWA.

FWA sources have told VEXNEWS that aside from Lawler’s obviously improper meddling in Health Services Union business that he has been thoroughly distracted from his duties since he fell for Jackson with considerable delays in his decisions so reforms include:

■ A name change to the Australian Workplace Relations Commission;

■ New timeliness benchmarks;

■ Restrictions on engaging in public debate on controversial matters relating to their duties;

■  And that FWA members ought “avoid using the authority and status of a member’s office for private purposes”.

The Australian reports:

Justice Ross confirmed he had held talks with the tribunal’s other vice-president, Michael Lawler, the partner of HSU national secretary Kathy Jackson.

The ABC reported in May that Mr Lawler had written to the NSW Cyber Crime Squad accusing HSU national president Michael Williamson of criminal activity.

Lawler has also been accused of making private representations to HSU officials, including threats and attempts to persuade them to follow Kathy Jackson’s instructions.

FWA sources have also revealed that Lawler’s sons have held wild parties in FWA premises in Melbourne – attracting very large clean-up bills paid for taxpayers. These are the same lads who “worked” at the HSU on an hourly rate nearly twice what HSU members are paid. Jackson, who has criticised foes in the union for nepotism, arranged the employment, which was also sanctioned by her under-boss Marco Bolano, whose $1M home mortgage suggests he’s been living high on the hog too.

  1. Does Marco have a job following his sacking by the court appointed administrator?

  3. Marco would be lucky to get a job at Mcdonald’s, and if he did he would get the sack for insulting customers. Here is a newsflash Marco, Karma is a bitch!!!!

  4. I hear in Sydney haircuts and botox treatments are double of South melbourne kathy may need to tone her “union couture” look now that she is a “kept woman” and try to blend in with double-day darlings.

  7. Bring on the elections, who to vote for??? Hull backed by Williamson or K Hart & T Hinge backed by Jackson – who I believe is moving to Sydney so she can run the Union. There has to be a better alternative.

  8. Gerard Hayes team is the only one to vote for. Hull and the current administration management team need to go, Wiliamson cronies, that aided and abetted him. And Jackson lost her way, what kind of leadership is that.
