The construction union and six of its officials have been hit with $428,250 in fines over their handling of a series of safety disputes during the redevelopment of an Adelaide Airport terminal in 2019.

Mr Albert was ordered to pay $5000 and Mr Savage $4500. Four other organisers were fined $28,050 for a series of other breaches, including failing to show or have proper permits to conduct safety inspections on the site.
