TWU hearings to open in Sydney

30 June 2014

The Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption will begin its Sydney hearings into the Transport Workers' Union (TWU) this week.

Proceedings involving TWU Super began in Perth last week when the Commission heard from witness Mr Paul Bracegirdle. A further three witnesses in that matter are expected to give evidence in Sydney on Wednesday, 2 July 2014. A transcript of the Perth proceedings is available online at www.tradeunionroyalcommission.gov.au/Hearings.

Senior Counsel Assisting the Commissioner, Mr Jeremy Stoljar SC, will also open a matter involving the Transport Education Audit Health Compliance Organisation (TEACHO), in which six witnesses are expected to give evidence.

The hearings are scheduled to run for three days from Wednesday, 2 July to Friday, 4 July 2014 and will be held in the Commission's hearing room on Level 5, 55 Market Street, Sydney.
