Blackburn Vikings are pleased to announce that Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) of Victoria have re-joined the sponsorship ranks at Blackburn Vikings as a Gold Level Big V Sponsor for Victorian Youth Championship Men’s Guard, James Tanner.

CFMEU has become a long time supporter of hard-nosed guard Tanner and the Blackburn Vikings Big V Program.

The Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) of Victoria has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850s.

The union's successful bargaining campaigns continue to deliver high wages and better conditions like superannuation, redundancy pay and income protection.

The CFMEU never compromises on safety. We back up our workplace health and safety reps and give them the training they need to minimise risks to workers. In construction, you enforce your safety rights by being a member of the CFMEU.

The CFMEU believes strongly in training. Our accredited training and education unit runs courses in all aspects of construction work as well as first aid and industry induction. The unit also builds up our strength by training shop stewards for their role on construction sites.

The CFMEU Vic Branch has a proud tradition of sponsoring local communities, clubs, hospitals and charity events, raising money for them including James Tanner of the Blackburn Vikings.

A number of Blackburn Vikings Big V players are still on the lookout for sponsors for the 2018 Big V season. To join the Blackburn Vikings family like CFMEU, simply contact the club.
