Mitrovic’s steelfixing company raked in $11 million in
nine months while associated with companies working on
Queensland hospitals and high-rises.

internal gang dispute last year, infiltrated the
industry after “standing over” the boss of one of the
country’s biggest steelfixing businesses, Dennis Delic,
former business associates claim.
Mr Delic, who died last month, signed
a workplace agreement on behalf of Mitrovic’s company
SFC Steelfixing QLD with the Queensland branch of the
CFMEU on Christmas Eve 2010.
The company collapsed weeks later with
a $1 million tax debt, no assets and no employees.
Local CFMEU boss David Hanna said Lend

union claims, saying the company had no record of direct

latter as president, while still based in Sydney.

brother-in-law was gunned down in an infamous triple
murder in a Sydney pub by a Rebel and two associates in

double murder just a year later.
