Unions royal commission: final report delivered: Findings 'small tip of an enormous iceberg'
Justice Heydon said the conduct had taken place in a wide range of industries and unions.
Trade union Royal Commissioner Dyson Heydon has laid bare a roll-call of “louts, thugs, bullies, thieves, perjurers, those who threaten violence, errant fiduciaries and organisers of boycotts” in his findings on the two-year inquiry into union corruption.
In the scathing final report, which details examples of “widespread” and “deep-seated” misconduct within the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union, the Australian Workers Union, the Transport Workers Union, the Health Services Union and the National Union of Workers, Mr Heydon called for an all-powerful “regulator” with the power to shut down unions and employer groups. He refers former trade union boss turned Victorian MP Cesar Melhem to Victorian prosecutors for consideration of possible corruption and false accounting charges.
Former Health Services Union secretary Kathy Jackson is also referred to prosecutors to consider whether she should be charged for obtaining property and financial advantage by deception.
"These aberrations cannot be regarded as isolated," the report said.
"They are not the work of a few rogue unions, or a few rogue officials.
"The misconduct exhibits great variety. It is widespread. It is deep-seated.

The criminal headquarters of one of Sydney's most notorious underworld figures "Teflon" Tony Vincent could easily have been the inspiration for Tony Soprano's fictional strip club, the Bada Bing.
Back on a balmy Sunday afternoon in the late summer of 1997, the upmarket Sydney suburb of Woollahra was rocked by a huge explosion in Tara Street.
At first it was thought that the neighbouring Turkish embassy had been blown up.
Drinkers at the nearby Lord Dudley Hotel were astonished to see a man staggering past the hotel with half his buttock blown off.
The trail of blood from the man's mangled posterior led the police to the scene of the crime, where they found the remainder of Gibson's bum cheek. With it was his wallet.
Meanwhile, staggering down the street, dazed and injured and wearing only one shoe was Tony Vincent jnr. Buried under the rubble, crime scene investigators found a stolen car in the foot well of which was a size 9 Nike running shoe.
