Evidence sought in independent blacklisting collusion inquiry

Unite is stepping up its search for information into the possible collusion by trade union officials into the blacklisting of construction workers.

In April 2022 Unite established an independent inquiry into allegations that some union officials may have colluded with the blacklisting of construction workers.

Workers were frequently denied work for raising safety concerns on site, with an illegal industry-financed blacklisting organisation, The Consulting Association, coordinating the list which included details on over 3,000 site workers.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Blacklisting is a disgusting practice which ruins workers’ lives. Unite has been and continues to be at the forefront of stamping out this practice once and for all.”
