The trade union representing power workers nationwide has hit back at South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon after he accused the union and its members of lying in an interview with Seven News Adelaide.

Mr Xenophon said: “unfortunately, in industrial disputes, truth can be the first casualty.”

CEPU electrical division national secretary Allen Hicks accused Mr Xenophon of being “very much on the wrong side of the debate.”

Mr Hicks joined the program to discuss the issue.
