UNITE director of legal services, Howard Beckett said:
'Unite is continuing to litigate on behalf of those construction workers whose lives were ruined by the 'blacklisting' scandal.
'Unite has issued a witness summons for Callum McAlpine, the alleged architect of 'blacklisting' and a named defendant, to give evidence at the High Court trial next month. He has, so far, steadfastly refused to give a statement in response to the serious allegations made against him.
'Last October, the construction firms involved in blacklisting made an unprecedented admission of guilt and Unite intends to seek justice and compensation to the maximum extent on behalf of our members following those admissions.'
