Blacklist Support Group latest

Blacklist Support Group - End of Year Event
Wednesday 17th December 2014
Dress Code: Cheesy xmas jumpers, Rudolf antlers & Santa hats (its more likely to make the press):
1. High Court trial continues
9:30am - Blacklist Support Group lobby & photo opportunity
Royal Courts of Justice
The Strand
(nearest tube: Holborn or Temple)
The next stage of the blacklisting group litigation in the High Court takes place on 17th December. After years of the companies denying that they hold any minutes or correspondence relating to the Consulting Association or the Economic League, a court order requires the firms to provide a report about what documentation they do hold and what they are prepared to disclose. If every firm continues to claim they do not have a single document despite their directors attending meetings every 3 months over a 16 year period, you will hear the shouts of "COVER UP" in Dundee.
2. Blacklist Support Group meeting in parliament (journalists welcome)
4:30pm - 6:30pm
Committee Room 17
Houses of Parliament
This will provide an update for all blacklisted workers & supporters from the High Court legal action plus ongoing campaigning including the compensation scheme, progress towards a public inquiry, police collusion, publicly funded contracts. This meeting will act as a mini-AGM, so if any blacklisted worker has any specific issues to raise, please forward them to this email address beforehand.
Invited speakers: John McDonnell MP, Dave Smith (BSG sec), Steve Acheson / Steve Kelly (BSG co-chairs), Gail Cartmail (UNITE AGS), Justin Bowden (GMB), Liam Dunne (GCR solicitors)
