    Congratulations on how much you have achieved so far against possible factors started, at least in part, perhaps as early as 1919; I have only really adverse experiences as far back as 1970 in the employment context in the UK and 1974 in New Zealand, but know how “difficulties” can influence careers of family members and possibly, based on 2007 onwards for my sons, educations of children. “Reluctant Whistleblower” since 1978 who “retired” in 2009, so possibly one of the “lucky survivors” to date (if I am to believe the numerous “warnings”.

    It’s been 4 years campaigning since we discovered the documents that proven the blacklist existed but 40 years of struggle when the big companies siad we were all conspiracy theorists.

    Thanks for your solidarity from around the globe.

    Ruth – please pass on our best wishes to Dean Mighell now he is standing down.

    ETU have been staunch supporters in our campaign and lots of blacklisted construction workers in the UK wear ETU colours when we are picketing.

    Once upon a time,There was an Electrician who was an elected safety Rep.His colleagues complained to him and the unsafe jobs were stopped. 18 months later the safety rep left the rig.No one died nor received any physical injury,.Bearing in mind we had just constructed The Piper Bravo,Probably 100,000 tonnes of steel,built 120 miles away from Aberdeen.(Approx)This rig replaced the Piper Alpha where 167 men lost their lives due to a” TRAGIC ACCIDENT?” This spark was then BLACKLISTED
