Blacklisting day of action, Wednesday 6th December

It’s not clear how many places will be taking part in the day of action against blacklisting in the construction industry, but here’s the details I’ve managed to find:

London: 9am – Skanska offices, Goswell Road, Barbican, EC1A 4JY – direct action
12:15pm – Westminster Rally followed by lobby of parliament

Birmingham: Demo on 6th December at 12.00 at the McAlpine site Exchange Square, Urban Village Site, Gate 4, Dale End, opposite Scruffy Murphy’s Pub. B4 7LN

Leeds: Robert McAlpine Site, City Square, Leeds, 8.00-10.00

Nottingham: “The blacklisting of construction workers is a long running scandal that has blighted the industry for decades. Workers have been denied employment just for raising concerns about health and safety or simply being a member of a union. So how is it possible that the contract to renovate the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre has been awarded to McAlpine, one of the most notorious blacklisting companies in the UK? Join us at Broadmarsh at 10am and at City Hall, Market Square, at 12 noon to demand that McAlpines are stripped of this contract”

Edinburgh: Scottish Parliament, 12.00

Those are the only ones I’m aware of, but if you want to check if there’s anything going on in your area, here’s a list of regional contacts:

Scotland: steven.dillon@unitetheunion.org
NEYH: (north east) tom.usher@unitetheunion.org

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
