A little local problem in Liverpool

Lee James Fowler   posted on BLACKLIST SUPPORT GROUP Facebook site  8 hours ago:

A MOTION was put before Liverpool Construction Branch tonight,

It reads: Unite Branch NW/0541 notes Liverpool City Council's continued, ill-fated relationship with two of the most prolific Consulting Association Blacklisters  - namely Carillion and Laing O'Rourke,which has been brought into even sharper focus by the collapse of Carillion.

The Unite Branch NW/0541 shares  The Blacklist Support Group's dismay that these rogue contractors have been securing public contracts within Our City, thereby rendering the Cabinets motion,passed in 2013, meaningless; to the point of dereliction of duty.  It also contravenes the ethos of the document referred to as the "Workers Charter".  The Unite Branch NW/0541 therefore resolves to instruct the Council that blacklisting was and still is an unacceptable practice,which cannot be condoned.  We therefore urge that those companies who were members of the clandestine organisation,the Consulting Association,and any others found to be engaging in Blacklisting,be removed forthwith from the approved list for future construction work procured by the Council.

Since these discredited contractors have continued to be awarded work in the City, this Unite Branch NW/0541 calls for a working group to be set up,comprising of two elected members of the Blacklist Support Group, and the appropriate cabinet council members,to monitor this process of disengagement.

Sorry I forgot to say it was passed unanimously.
