Breaking news – mass wildcat against blacklisting at Atomic Weapons Establishment

Breaking news coming from the Construction Rank and File network:

“They’re at it again. NG Bailey, Costain Group and AWE PLC are all pointing fingers at each other over who is responsible for blacklisting sparks at AWE Burghfield. Over 200 sparks walked off the Burghfield site today in support of their Unite the union safety rep who was removed from the site by NG Bailey – a firm with a long history of blacklisting union members. These are the very same electricians whose action in May 2021 was decisive in winnning the No2ESO industrial dispute.”

Dave Smith adds that:

“NG Bailey sent out letters threatening disciplinary action this afternoon. Costain (another firm with a history of blacklisting) are the main contractor on the project.”

"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."
