Australian Health Services Union in crisis

The 77,000 strong Health Services Union (HSU) was suspended from the Australian council of trade unions (ACTU) yesterday as speculation mounts that an impending internal audit will find extensive irregularities. ACTU secretary, Jeff Lawrence, said the HSU needed to clean itself out, "this decision has been made to send a clear message to the national executive of the HSU that it must demonstrate it has a plan to deal with governance and financial management issues."
