London protest to defend construction workers

Issue No. 2185

The GMB union has called a protest in London against the underpayment and exploitation of construction workers.

The protest comes after an audit found that subcontractor Somi has been underpaying its workers by 1,300 euros a month.

The Somi subcontractor works for the main contractor Alstom at the Staythorpe power station—where workers are currently balloting for industrial action over redundancies.

The protest takes place on Wednesday 3 February at the offices of Alstom and Peter Mandelson.
