Award for Blacklist campaign

Issue No. 2210

The Blacklist Support Group won the Hazards Campaign Alan Award 2010 last week.

The group got the gong for its ongoing campaign to win justice for the innocent building workers caught up in the blacklisting scandals.

Some 44 firms were exposed for having operated a covert database containing the details of over 3,200 workers.

The vast majority were put on the list because of their trade union membership or because they had raised concerns about safety issues.
