Workers on Canberra's light rail project have been ripped off $700,000, according to a wage theft lawsuit to be filed in the Federal Court this week.
It is understood the construction union will allege several contractors, working on the ACT Government's billion-dollar project, underpaid workers.
It is the second wage theft lawsuit filed by the union this year, with allegations up to $70,000 had been kept from employees on a $300-million ACT government office project.
CFMEU ACT secretary Jason O'Mara accused the government of abandoning workers and walking away from an election commitment to legislate a secure local jobs code intended to stop exploitation.
The government has promised a raft of legislative, regulatory and administrative changes to ensure the government awarded contracts to companies that met the highest ethical standards.
It released a discussion paper on the package in February, and has been reviewing feedback and conducting consultations since.
