CFMEU on state flagship Metro tunnel are under investigation.

The Herald Sun has exposed incriminating footage of white powder and opened alcohol beverages from an office used by the militant construction union CFMEU on the state’s flagship Metro tunnel construction site. 

The explosive clip, believed to have been taken in September, has been passed on to Victoria Police amid concerns about safety on the $13.7 billion rail link. 

The footage was taken outside the new office at the CBD North station which is used by CFMEU workplace delegates and health and safety representatives. 

Whilst it’s not known who was ingesting the drugs, the person who filmed it said it looked like people had been enjoying some “drinks and lines”.

“These people must have been fried. You would not be OK to leave that on the table, and lock the door and leave,” that insider said.

The Union said it was not aware of the film clip until now, but would co-operate with any probe. 

“The union would assist any investigation into this ­incident,” a spokesman said.

Rail Projects Victoria Chief Executive Evan Tattersall said matters such as these are treated with the “utmost seriousness”, confirming it has been forwarded on to the police for investigation. 

CFMEU said it enforces a two strikes policy and workers are subject to random testing.
