Hazards Trust Public Meeting THE SECRET WAR BETWEEN BIG BUSINESS AND UNION ACTIVISTS
Wednesday 18th November 2015 speakers: Dave Smith; Author Blacklisted and Frank Keogh; West Midlands Unite the Union
Dave Smith is a blacklisted construction worker and author of Blacklisted. In it he tells the controversial story of the illegal strategies that transnational construction companies resorted to in their attempt to keep union activists and health and safety reps away from their places of work. This is a story of a bitter struggle, in which collusion with the police and security services resulted in victimization, violence and unemployment, with terrible effects on families and communities.
In October the Blacklist Support Group forced the eight largest construction companies involved to admit their guilt. These companies were desperate to avoid appearing in court but the campaign is continuing.
