Blacklist latest!

1. Another death in the building industry
Our thoughts are with the family of yet another construction worker killed at work as the carnage in the industry continues. This time on a Laing O'Rourke site in Heathrow. 

2. Protest at High Court 
Blacklist campaigners were outside the High Court on 26th September 

3. High Court 16th October

4. Blacklisting public meeting in Shetland 
Tuesday 7th Oct - 7;30pm start
British Legion Club
organised by the UNITE LT 156 Construction branch and stewards committee at Sella Ness - everyone welcome 

Some of the blacklisting companies are currently building in Shetland; Balfour Beatty are a major contractor at Sullum Voe, a project where union members from UNITE and GMB have had difficulty getting onto the site, prompting accusations of ongoing blacklisting.  

5. Crane drivers ballot for industrial action

6. Balfour Beatty are up to their cost cutting measures against workers, this time on the M25 contract. With 25 years left to run on the contract, the blacklisting firm are trying to take away holiday entitlement, lower terms and conditions and holiday pay.
