Bob Katter to run CFMEU candidates in marginal Queensland coal seats

Bob Katter has recruited two union members to run against Labor at the federal election, seizing on a rupture over the Adani coal mine that has left Bill Shorten exposed in the key battleground state. Mr Katter, is a paid member of the CFMEU. Katter said he was in discussions with the union’s leadership over a perception that Labor stood in the way of jobs in the region. “The boys on the ground are saying the state government is anti-coal mining”.
