The CFMEU (Construction & General Division) has appealed Vice President Cahill’s recent decision allowing all-in rates in the building industry.

At first instance, his Honour had held that employers who choose to make ‘all-in’ payments, with the consent of the employee, were not in breach of the relevant award. Furthermore, in the event of a non-payment of wages and/or allowances claim, the employer was entitled to set-off against the claim any monies already paid by way of an all-in payment.
