Building bosses defeated by unofficial Direct Action by militant electricians!

For the last six months militant electricians have been waging a campaign of direct action against eight major construction company's who have sought to pull out of the JIB national agreement by imposing deskilling and pay cuts of up to 35% on electricians working in the construction industry.

The campaign which saw building company's targeted by workers, led to some companies pulling out of BESNA (Building Engineering Services National Agreement)when faced with the direction action tactics of the workers. On 17th February Balfour Beatty announced that they were pulling out of BESNA after they failed to obtain a court injunction to stop a strike. Other company's then announced that they would also be pulling out.

This excellent video shows how workers taking militant direction action can win!
