Government flags broader union inquiry


The Abbott government will launch a royal commission into union corruption which goes further than the coalition flagged before the federal election.

The coalition went to the 2013 election promising to restore the building and construction industry watchdog and hold a judicial inquiry specifically into fraud allegations against the Australian Workers Union. But Prime Minister Tony Abbott said recent reports of other alleged corruption in the trade union movement meant that a "full inquiry" was required.
