CHRIS MATHESON MP (For CHESTER) & THE BLACKLISTING

Coming soon....

But for now, a Facebook message quote from (Unite Executive Council member, Joint Secretary of The Blacklist Support Group and friend of John McDonnell) Roy Bentham on the trade union complicity in the blacklisting.

"Matheson does need outing Alan"

"We need as much evidence as possible for that inquiry to have legs"

RITCHIE JAMES (UNITE) & THE DAVID CRAGGS BLACKLISTS

The question as to why Unite's Regional Secretary Ritchie James is threatening me with legal action on behalf of the construction company labour manager David Craggs (who compiled and distributed two new construction blacklists - The David Craggs Blacklists) remains unanswered.

There are over 200 mechanical and electrical workers from Manchester and the North West on these new blacklists, which were compiled by Craggs on major projects such as The Manchester MRI, Beetham Tower and Media City between 2005 and 2010.

Workers on those blacklists inform me that Craggs would brag about his blacklists and threaten certain workers with inclusion on them. 

In the absence of an explanation, blacklisted workers can only presume that Mr Craggs has something over Mr James in respect of the trade union officials who were complicit in the blacklisting.

Were these new blacklists compiled with the help of trade union officials?

PETER RAZA - SKANSKA - MORE BLACKLISTING SKULLDUGGERY

The following information was obtained from my subject access request to Skanska.

The first email is from someone within Skanska to someone within Skanska. Their names are redacted.

Email 1: 15 March 2016

"Following a conversation with one of our agencies this morning I wanted to make you aware of a potential situation that has arisen with them. A candidate called Alan Wainwright was put on the construction blacklist back when it was in operation, he applied to Annapurna back in August for a Resourcing role within Skanska" 

So we have written evidence that I had applied for a Resourcing job with Skanska in August 2015 via one of their preferred agencies, Annapurna.

The second email is from me to Israil Bryan at Skanska, following an order from Regional Employment Judge, Barry Clark for all respondents to my 2016 legal blacklisting claims to disclose information. 

Email 2: 1 July 2016 

"Hi Israil, 

The regional employment judge for wales, Mr Barry Clarke has ordered all agency respondents in my claims to now provide me with information regarding the clients that hired them for the roles in question. 

Following this order, Annapurna HR Ltd have provided the following for the role of Recruitment Business Partner, which they now say they were recruiting for Skanska. 

1. The company that hired them: Skanska UK Plc
2. The date they were hired to recruit for this role: 7 July 2015 

3. Annapurna contact: Niall Petchey
4. The person at Skanska who engaged them: Ayton Hyton
5. The date the request was withdrawn: 24 July 2015.

They also state that Skanska UK Plc selected one candidate from their shortlist of four for interview and offered them the job.

As mentioned in our telephone call, my claims have absolutely no bearing toward Skanska, and it is Annapurna HR Ltd who have named Skanska as their client. 

It would be very helpful if you you clarify which of the above is factually correct and which is not. 

Best regards, Alan"  

The third email is Israil Bryan's response to me, which basically states that none of the information disclosed to the employment tribunal by their preferred supplier Annapurna is true.

Email 3: 11 July 2016

"Dear Alan, 

Thank you for your email. We are very happy to answer your email and tell you what we can. I note from your email that you are not making any claim against Skanska, you are just asking for some information, and we are more than happy to provide this. 

I have reviewed the information you have provided and must clarify that Skanska did not recruit for a ‘Recruitment Business Partner‘s’ position at all last year. The nearest vacancy we had, which you may be confused with was for a ‘Resourcing Manager’ as detailed below.

This role was never released to agencies to fill as we decided at the outset to advertise the role directly via job boards (as shown in the screen shots from our in-house recruitment system). 

This vacancy was subsequently cancelled on 23rd July 2015 due to budget constraints, as such no one was hired against this vacancy at all. 

It is worth noting that Aytan Hilton, who you cite in your correspondence was not employed by Skanska at this particular time, though he had previously been employed by Skanska as an interim Manager. 

Finally, I should mention that if you did apply as an applicant for aforementioned Resourcing Manager’s role then I can find no record of it having been received. The only role we have received your details for was the Labour Manager position which we interviewed you for. 

Please let me know if you require any further information or clarification. 

Kind Regards, Israil" 

Following the information received from my subject access request at Email 1 above, we now know that Israil Bryan's resposnse was a total pack of lies, as we now have written evidence from within Skanska confirming that I had applied for the role via Annapurna.

But this was not just Israil's response. She was consulting and fronting for none other than Head Of Employee Relations at Skanska - Peter Raza.

The fourth email shows Israil consulting him a few days before on the wording of her response to me.

Email 4: 5 July 2016

"Hi Pete

Please can you review the email before and confirm you are happy for me to send to Alan Wainwright. 

Regards, Israil"

Israil then details the following to Raza 

"Dear Alan

Thank you for your email.

I have reviewed the information you have provided and unfortunately we did not recruit for a 'Recruitment Business Partner' at all last year.

The closest vacancy we had was for a 'Resourcing Manager' as detailed below. This role was never released to agencies as we advertised directly and on job boards (as shown in the screen shots for our recruitment system). This vacancy was subsequently cancelled on 23rd July 2015 due to budget constraints, as such no one was hired against this vacancy at all.

It is worth noting that Aytan Hilton was not employed by Skanska during this time as he had been an interim whose contract finished earlier in the year. In addition I can confirm that we did not receive your details as an applicant for this role via any source. The only role we have received your details for was for the Labour Manager position which we interviewed you for. 

Please let me know if you require any further information or clarification. Kind Regards, Israil." 

They obviously had a few more goes at this between them before sending their final response five days later at email 3 above.

So why are the construction companies alerting each other to job applications from blacklisted workers? 

Why are they still taking extensive measures like the above at the very top of their organisations?

Why are they accessing secretly recorded conversations of blacklisted workers?

Because they are still blacklisting.  

Israil Bryan has since left Skanska and is now Group Diversity & Inclusion Specialist at Standard Chartered Bank. Inclusion may be a typo and should most probably read "Exclusion".

PETER RAZA - SKANSKA HEAD OF EMPLOYEE RELATIONS

Information received from my subject access request to Skanska.

Unknown to Peter Raza - 15 March 2016

"Pete

FYI - I understand from my lunchtime conversation with Harvey (Francis) today you are aware of this individual"

Peter Raza to unknown - 15 March 2016

"I am aware of him and his reputation.

More recently he applied for the newly created role of Labour Manager with SRW.

As soon as I became aware I ensured by speaking to Israel and [Redacted] that we did everything by the numbers and Israel did an excellent job"

Everything by the numbers? 

We all know what that means.

SECRET TELEPHONE SURVEILLANCE

Who is secretly recording our telephone conversations? Information gained from my subject access request to Skanska.

Comments extracted from email exchanges between Skanska, Balfour Beatty and Graylings.

Email - 3 October 2014 (12:21): "Is it possible to quickly check the phone log to see exactly what was said to him? Just in case? For example, if he has his info from ICO and was talking through what he might get with Broadspire, they could have discussed a figure."

Email - 3 October 2014 (12:30): "As I explained yesterday we cannot check the call register without asking him for the incoming call number and we do not wish to alert him to anything that might be recorded."

JOB APPLICATIONS - SKANSKA, KIER & OTHERS

Who is sharing information about our job applications? Information gained from my subject access request to Skanska.

This confirms that multiple construction companies were alerting each other to some of our job applications.

Hi

Kier recently had an application for employment from Alan Wainwright and I believe others too have received similar letters. Kier responded to AW as they would with any other application.

I spoke to [Redacted] earlier this week and as well as the application from Alan Wainwright they have also received an application from [Redacted] for a project in [Redacted] 

I have highlighted this to [Redacted] for discussion on Monday. Have a good weekend."
