Controversial union boss John Setka has launched an appeal against the Victorian Supreme Court’s decision permitting his expulsion from the Australian Labor Party.

Mr Setka lodged leave to appeal with the Court of Appeal on September 24 and his move was made public on Wednesday.

Labor is moving to get rid of Mr Setka for bringing the party into disrepute, including through allegations of domestic violence and criticism of family violence campaigner Rosie Batty for eroding men’s rights.
