BLACKLIST SUPPORT GROUP / UNITE CROSSRAIL LIES

The Blacklist Support Group ("BSG") and Unite have made a big deal about claims of blacklisting at Crossrail over the years, yet this confession by BSG and Unite Executive Council member, Frank Morris reveal it was all a lie.

Frank boasts about Michael Newman (Leigh Day) submitting the legal blacklisting claim at Crossrail without any evidence in a Facebook exchange with myself and BSG/Unite Executive Council members, Roy Bentham and Tony Seaman.

FRANK MORRIS CROSSRAIL CONFESSION 

Unite Executive Council member, Frank Morris writing about Leigh Day lawyer, Michael Newman:

"He saved the day for my Crossrail tribunal".

"I remember his face when he agreed to submit the Crossrail claim without any evidence". 

Unite Executive Council member, Tony Seaman gives this the big thumbs up.

There's more on Frank and his Crossrail allegations in this post from 2013.

BLACKLIST SUPPORT GROUP - LIES, LIES & MORE LIES

Q: What do you get if you try to publish the factual truth about the complicity in and cover up of the blacklisting by senior Unite/Amicus trade union officials?

A: A barrage of abuse and absolute blatant lies spread about you.

The attached letter from Leigh Day reveals an example of this from the CIVIG High Court blacklisting litigation in which workers from the Jubilee Line Extension ("JLE") project wrongly named me as a major blacklister alongside Stephen Quant at Skanska between 1997 and 1999.

LEIGH DAY LETTER - OCT 2018

I have never worked at Skanska, never met or known Quant, nor blacklisted any worker. My employment history and very limited contact with Ian Kerr is well documented and has been scrutinised by a parliamentary select committee, key senior trade union officials at the GMB and their lawyers and many trade unionists during the presentations I have made at their branches.

Not one single question about this from any of them, yet every blacklisted worker with a JLE 3252/A6 ("A.W.") file wrongly named me as a serial blacklister in the High Court CIVIG litigation.

The true identity of the AW at Skanska on those files was known by all and sundry in the blacklisting campaign, but someone chose to put me in there.  

Further, their solicitors signed these off as statements of truth. Solicitors hired and paid for by the trade unions. 

Solicitors including Michael Newman at Leigh Day who has been providing me personally with legal advice on the blacklisting since 2014. 

My own solicitor. Not one single question about the Skanska lies. Lot's of questions about everything else to do with the blacklisting, but not one single question about the Skanska lies.

There is not one scrap of truth in these allegations and the perpetrators of such thought I would never come into possession of the documents.

The lies were also not a mistake. How could all those blacklisted workers come to the very same conclusion about me blacklisting them at the JLE project without a single scrap of evidence to support this?

How could all their lawyers come to the very same conclusion without a single scrap of evidence to support this?

They could not.

This second Leigh Day letter highlights further blatant lies written about me by Dave Smith and Phil Chamberlain. Again, not one single question put to me before publishing, yet they too publish a pack of lies and place me closely to the suicide of two Jubilee Line Extention workers.

The letter also highlights some of the abuse and lies from other Blacklist Support Group/senior Unite Executive Council members such as Tony Seaman and Frank Morris.

Tony Seaman

"here you cheeky cunt you have anything to say meet us in Holborn you Blacklisting Cunt You ruined men's lives"

"excuse me you fuckwit I was giving you your chance to speak about things and now you accuse us of not doing anything"

"you turned whistleblower to help yourself and now you can't get any backing you have a go at us you dumb cunt" 

Frank Morris

"had the opportunity to expose everything when he was blacklisting us Decided to carry on stopping us earning a wage and feeding our families so he could pick up his wages. Hypocrite"

The comments above are only a selection of the abuse I have received and are consistent with the lies in the legal papers.

Frank Morris also worked on the Jubilee Line Extension and is detailed on the Drake & Scull lists I gave to Unite/Amicus in 2005/2006.

LEIGH DAY LETTER - MAY 2018

There are further lies in the High Court CIVIG litigation papers about me operating a blacklist of some 500 workers at Carilion during my time there. This was supposedly based on information gained from Mary Kerr. 

So who interviewed her and presented those lies to the lawyers?

Again not one single question to me about this from anyone. Just more lies in the High Court CIVIG legal claims.

DAVID CRAGGS - MRI BLACKLISTS MEETING (18 NOV 2018)

The first meeting of blacklisted workers took place yesterday in Manchester bringing harrowing accounts from those affected. These were all too similar to those on the Consulting Association blacklist:
  • Disputes over none payment of wages, 
  • Being involved in trade union collections for blacklisted workers,
  • Being asked to work in unsafe conditions, 
  • Skilled tradesmen on long term unemployment benefit and,
  • Being singled out and refused work.
One worker had not even worked on the MRI or Beetham Tower projects and had only worked for Craggs on loan to Haden Young (a Balfour Beatty subsidiary and Consulting Association member) some years previous.

The most disturbing account for me was that Craggs would openly threaten workers to their face with inclusion on his blacklists.

A further meeting is planned for Sunday 2 December 2018 in Manchester. If you feel you may have been affected by blacklisting then please get in touch via alanwainwright1963@gmail.com

The question of why Unite's Regional Secretary, Ritchie James is threatening me with legal action unless I remove Mr Craggs's name from my website remains unanswered.  

Bent union officials. Buried the evidence back in 2006. Still covering up the cover up.

DAVID CRAGGS - MRI & BEETHAM HILTON TOWER BLACKLISTS

Is what they can now be referred to as.

UNITE, THEIR SOLICITORS & IAN KERR IN 2006

Evidence that Unite officials and their solicitors knew about Ian Kerr and the Consulting Association in 2006 is detailed in this document from Rowley Ashworth Solicitors to Unite Regional Official, Mick Tuff.

The document can be viewed and downloaded via this link, in which the third paragraph states:

"For instance, in our recent discussion, you indicated that Mr Wainwright had told you about a Mr Iain Kerr and that you made some preliminary investigations." 

Bent union officials. Buried the evidence back in 2006. Still covering up the cover up.

DAVID CRAGGS - MRI BLACKLISTS & THE CONSULTING ASSOCIATION

A significant breakthrough this afternoon, directly linking the new MRI blacklists to at least one Consulting Association member company, various recruitment agencies and one previously known prolific construction industry blacklisting manager.

As more blacklisted workers from the MRI lists come forward, the pieces of this jigsaw are coming together nicely.

The question of why Unite's Regional Secretary, Ritchie James is threatening me with legal action unless I remove Mr Craggs's name from my website remains unanswered.

Bent union officials. Buried the evidence back in 2006. Still covering up the cover up.

CIVIG BLACKLISTING LITIGATION - LIES, LIES & MORE LIES

It has been brought to my attention (via a number of subject access requests) that wholly untrue claims were made about me supplying information to the Consulting Association in the actual CIVIG High Court Blacklisting claims. 

Further, that the solicitors responsible signed these off as statements of truth.

An example would be the claim made that myself and Stephen Quant supplied information on blacklisted workers from the Jubilee Line Extension project to the Consulting Association between 1997 and 1999 whilst employed at Skanska. 

I have never worked at Skanska, have never met or known Mr Quant and never supplied information to the Consulting Association. The true identity of Mr Quant’s colleague who helped supply the information could have been easily verified via a simple Internet search.

I have also learned of other equally disturbing false claims made about me in that litigation from the subject access requests.

It is no wonder I have been the recipient of the abuse, bullying, lies and false claims made about me over the last few years by senior blacklisting campaigners and trade union executive council members.

This letter from Leigh Day to the authors and publishers of the ‘Blacklisted’ book details many examples.


It is also no wonder that I have been ignored by senior Labour politicians when trying to raise the complicity in and cover up of the blacklisting in 2005/2006 by their financiers, Unite (then Amicus).

It is also no wonder that I was told I could not be a claimant in the CIVIG litigation by Guney Clark & Ryan.
 
So how do you discredit a blacklisting whistleblower trying to expose the complicity in and cover up of the blacklisting by senior trade union officials?

Label him as a blacklister.

I will deal with these lies in due course and expose the nasty far left and bent union officials at the heart of it. My immediate priority however is to ensure that these lies have not been replicated in the seventy or so new blacklisting claims supposedly brought against the construction companies by Unite.
