    11 February 2015 www.fwc.gov.au 11 February 2015 1/1 Statement from Fair Work Commission General Manager re Craig Thomson matter
    Fair Work Commission General Manager, Bernadette O’Neill has made the following statement regarding her Federal Court proceedings against former Health Services Union National Secretary, Mr Craig Thomson:
    Today I have filed papers in the Federal Court of Australia seeking leave to re-enliven elements of my proceedings against Mr Craig Thomson, which were stayed during his recent criminal matter.
    In particular, I will be seeking to re-enliven matters relating to Mr Thomson’s alleged inappropriate use of union credit cards for escort services and personal expenditure whilst he was on annual leave.
    I believe I have good prospects of success in relation to these matters. In Mr Thomson’s recent criminal trial it was not found that he did not engage in this conduct, rather it was found that the framing of the charges did not support a conviction.
    On this basis, I believe it is in the public interest for Mr Thomson to be held to account for his alleged conduct. Therefore it is appropriate that I seek to re-enliven these matters and to pursue these alleged contraventions as part of the Federal Court proceedings that are set down for trial commencing on 30 March 2015.
