Crossrail blacklisting dispute continues:

3. ICO fails to release all the blacklist files as required by a Court Order

The ICO has released unredacted blacklist files to Guney, Clark & Ryan solicitors under a Court Disclosure Order as part of the High Court claim. For some so-far unexplained reason a number of files have not been sent including Brian Higgins (the individual with the largest blacklist file) and Jonny Jones (UCATT bricklayer).

What is going on?

GCR are currently chasing the files that got "lost" in transit to see whether it is a genuine mistake or if there is some other explanation. Watch this space.

4. ICO disclosure to GMB & UCATT

The ICO has provided the GMB and UCATT unions a list of names for the people on the blacklist to enable them to check against their own membership database. Expect more files to be released very soon.

5. Scottish blacklisting Meeting

There will be a special meeting to discuss blacklisting in our industry with top lawyers Liam Dunne and Brendan Clough.

The meeting will take place on:

10:30am Saturday 17th November 2012
