From Cautiously Pessimistic

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.”
