Protest against Balfour Beatty, 10am Friday 24 August 2012

Balfour Beatty Engineering Services HQ, Lumina Building, 40 Ainslie Road, Hillington Park, Glasgow, G52 4RU

Protest called jointly by: Blacklist Support Group and UNITE Scottish Sparks rank and file

Balfour Beatty is one of the worst of all the blacklisting firms with 6 Enforcement Orders against the company by the Information Commissioners Office because of their role in the Consulting Association scandal.

Gerry Harvey – Director of Human Resources for Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Limited – is a proven blacklister having been identified in parliament and in court.

Balfour Beatty continue to victimise workers who raise concerens about safety issues including Jonathan Carr from Birmingham and Alan Dransfield from the South West.

Balfour Beatty were also the lead firm attempting to drive down wages and de-skill the electrical contracting industry during the recent BESNA dispute. Electricians in Scotland involved in the dispute have been targeted by Balfour Beatty for redundancy (when no other workers were made redundant on the entire site).

    I am due to appear before an Upper Tribunal Test Case (tbc) which involves two Balfour Beatty Projects in Devon, in which I have raised Health and Safety claims. The local Authority ,i.e the Devon County Council(DCC) have refused my FOI requests under section 14(1) VEXATIOUS and have gone to great lengths including a lifetime email ban.Ditto for the HSE.

    At a FTT last Aug ,the FTT declared my FOI request was NOT vexatious, thus overturning an early DCC and ICO vexatious decision.
    The projects are 6 PFI schools in Exeter and the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Ground both of which I maintain are unsafe and unfit for purpose

    I worked on the Railgrinding trains transferred under TUPE in late June 2010 from Serco rail.
    I believe that I may be on a similar Blacklist.How would I be able to find this out?
