Shop steward reinstated

Sacked shop steward and OH&S representative Joe Angelino has been re-employed, ending a two-week standoff between the Construction, Forestry, Mining, Energy Union and his employer, Caelli Constructions, at the construction site for the new children's hospital in Parkville.

A protest taking place at the site gates for the past two weeks has now ended.

Caelli Constructions has refused to negotiate with the union, but principal contractor Bovis Lend Lease will re-employ Angelino.
