Unite Blacklisting Day of Action

thumbnail (1)

As we announced yesterday, Unite the Union staged a protest outside a McAlpine’s building site in Leeds today to say no to blacklisting in the construction industry. Unite activists were joined by members of Unite Community Leeds & Wakefield Branch.

Commuters walking past the McAlpine’s site just opposite an exit from the railway station were given leaflets and spoken to about the problem of blacklisting.

Blacklisting prevents workers, particularly trade unionists, from gainful employment in the construction industry as the result of coordinated blacklisting by building firms.

Unite is taking legal action against blacklisters and is demanding a public inquiry, is seeking to make blacklisting illegal and campaigning to ensure that public sector contracts do not go to blacklisters.
