‘Too close to big business’: Union turns on Mark McGowan

CFMEU State Secretary Christy Cain said the Premier is a vastly different politician to who he was when elected four years ago.

The union have been running an unprecedented advertising blitz apposing the Premiers plans to replace the Fremantle Port with an outer harbour in Cockburn Sound.
“He should be building hospitals, he should be building schools with the money he is going to waste on an outer harbor.
