Demonstration Against Blacklisting of Trade Union Members
Called by Trades Union Congress (TUC) - Supported by NUJ
Own up, clean up, pay up:
Wednesday 20 November at 11:00 am to 12:00 Noon
GMB Birmingham & West Midlands Region are organising a demonstration outside Carillion's, the contractors head office in Wolverhampton next Wednesday. This is to show our disgust at their part in Blacklisting Trade Union Members, Representatives and Health and Safety Representatives.
Blacklisting came to light when in 2009 when the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) seized a Consulting Association database of 3,213 construction workers and environmental activists used by 44 companies to vet new recruits and keep out of employment trade union and health and safety activists. These ordinary hard working people were prevented from working and providing for their families for years, we want Carillion to recognise that, we need your help to show them how annoyed we are.
Please spare an hour or so and come along to offer your support.
