Stop the presses!

VICTORIAN building unions are under investigation for extorting money from contractors and employers in return for industrial peace, a report tabled in Federal Parliament yesterday said.

Whoa, that IS news!
The Age, on Mick Gatto:
At the building industry royal commission in 2002 he was named as a standover man - and alternatively as an "industrial consultant" - over his role in a site agreement at the National Gallery of Victoria redevelopment project.

Gatto, who runs a company called Arbitrations and Mediations Pty Ltd and is also believed to have an interest in a crane company, protested at being labelled an underworld figure.

The figure bandied about id $250,000 paid to Gatto's company.

Nice work of you can get it!
