Senator Carr might like to listen to this: earlier this month, the national secretary of the CFMEU issued a so-called summons to a union whistleblower Brian Miller, to attend a secret meeting which took place just last week at CFMEU headquarters.

Mr Noonan issued a charge sheet which purported to charge Mr Miller with gross misbehaviour for which the union sought to expel him. But what is this gross misbehaviour alleged by Mr Noonan? I read from the charge sheet: 'On 16 October, Mr Miller appeared on the 7.30 program and he exposed the culture of coercion, corruption and criminality within the CFMEU.'
