Official TUC Day of Action on Blacklisting Targets Laing O’Rourke

The Blacklist Support Group is targeting Laing O’Rourke at the Cheesegrater construction project as part of the TUC Day of Action on blacklisting. 

The Cheesegrater construction project is one of the most high profile building sites in the UK, and is being targeted because Laing O’Rourke and their wholly owned electrical subsidiary, Crown House are both proven subscribers to the Consulting Association blacklist.
 
Laing O’Rourke is a defendant in the High Court claim being brought by Guney Clark & Ryan solicitors on behalf of blacklisted workers which is being supported by the Blacklist Support Group.
 
Crown House was one of the major electrical contractors that attempted to cut electricians wage rates by 35% when they pulled out of the JIB national agreement during the failed BESNA fiasco in 2012.
 
Organise transport – Bring your banners- let’s make this one a major set piece in the battle against the blacklist. Spread the word – splash it all over social media
 
This is an official TUC Day of Action on blacklisting – we need to mobilise to make sure the blacklisting firms get the message.
  • Own Up! Clean Up! Pay Up!
  • Jobs for blacklisted workers
