Multiplex threaten in fresh blackmail threat

Wembley stadium builder Multiplex has received a second letter warning its crane drivers will be shot at if it does not hand over $50 million Australian dollars by April 18.
The letter was received by a senior official at Australia's Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union.

In February Multiplex wa sent a similar letter threatening its crane drivers somewhere in the world, if the same amount of money was not handed over.

The company has operations around Australia, in the UK, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.

CFMEU NSW secretary Andrew Ferguson said; 'It's a serious threat, it's regarded as such by both Multiplex, the union and inevitably the workforce.

'We intend to address the issue by having stop-work meetings to rediscuss these types of threats that have been issued.'
