BENT UNION OFFICIALS - BLACKLISTING DOCUMENTARY

A new four part television documentary detailing my fifteen year campaign to expose everyone involved in the construction industry blacklisting, including the senior trade union officials involved in blacklisting their own members, and the Amicus/Unite General Secretaries' (Derek Simpson and Len McCluskey), Assistant General Secretaries' (Howard Beckett and Gail Cartmail) and senior members of The Blacklist Support Group's long standing efforts to keep everything from coming out.  Bent union officials. Buried my blacklisting evidence back in 2006. Still covering up the cover up. The films will also go into great detail about those who created a vicious smear campaign of lies about me being a major blacklister at Skanska in the High Court blacklisting litigation, as payback for my efforts to expose the above.  Last day of filming on 16 October and then onto editing.

LAING O'ROURKE - LIVERPOOL

Deaths on UK construction sites will never go away while there is a fear of being blacklisted for reporting health and safety issues.  Blacklisting construction manager, Dave Craggs (currently working for Laing O'Rourke on the Liverpool Royal Hospital project) is a primary example of their total disregard of the connection. You can read all about the mechanical and electrical blacklists (of over 200 Liverpool and Manchester workers) Craggs compiled and circulated below.  

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? RITCHIE JAMES LETTER   More info on these blacklists can be

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 U

DAVID CRAGGS - MRI & BEETHAM HILTON TOWER BLACKLISTS

Is what they can now be referred to as. 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 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.

DAVID CRAGGS - MRI BLACKLISTS - UNITE

Further to my recent post on the MRI blacklists (which can be read by either scrolling down the page or clicking this link ), two officials from Unite have written to me threatening legal action if I don't remove the reference to Mr Craggs. What possible reason could Unite have for getting involved in this on behalf of Mr Craggs? They should be demanding a full investigation into the companies involved, not sticking up for their management. Unite's joke of a letter can be viewed by clicking this link . Bent union officials. Buried the evidence back in 2006. Still covering up the cover up. Keep on covering up the cover up.
