Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU)

The Registered Organisations Commission is responsible for regulating the financial returns, annual returns, elections and disclosures of registered organisations. These records are available below.

Rules and Rule alterations remain with the Fair Work Commission and the FWC continues to host those records on its website external-icon.png.

About the CFMEU

Organisation type & coverage: employees connected to the building, construction, mining and timber industries

Financial year: generally 1 January to 31 December

Date of registration: 11 September 1962, originally as The Building Workers’ Industrial Union of Australia

The structure of the organisation incorporates divisions, to which the members of the organisation are attached, namely:

  • the Construction and General Division
  • the Forestry, Furnishing, Building Products and Manufacturing Division, and
  • the Mining and Energy Division.

The organisation and each of its divisions have their own discrete set of rules by which they are governed.

The members of the divisions are also divided into either districts or branches. Elections for office positions within the organisation, for which the term of office is 4 years, are predominantly conducted by the AEC. The Mining and Energy Division, however, holds exemptions from having their elections conducted by the AEC and from the postal ballot provisions under the RO Act.

In total there are 39 divisions, districts or branches, but only 24 of them are reporting units for the purposes of financial reporting (including the organisation). Not all of the 24 reporting units share the same financial year period.

The supreme governing body of the organisation is vested in the National Conference, which consists of the members of each Divisional Executive of the organisation.

The organisation’s structure also incorporates a National Executive, National Executive Committee, Divisional Conferences and Divisional Executives.

For the current rules, information on rules, rule alterations and permits, please see the Fair Work Commission website. These matters are dealt with by the Fair Work Commission.
