The Blacklist Support Group is asking supporters to try and get an emergency motion sent to union conferences. By concentrating on the recently exposed police collusion evidence, it should be possible to get the motion accepted as an “emergency”. Please feel free to edit as appropriate:
Emergency Motion: Blacklisting Public Inquiry
Conference notes with concern the reports in The Observer newspaper (4th March 2012) that the police and security services supplied information to an illegal blacklist of trade unionists in the construction industry.
Conference notes that the Consulting Association blacklist was used by multi-national contractors to repeatedly dismiss and deny work to thousands of building workers who raised concerns about safety issues, unpaid wages or participated in union activity.
Conference supports the call made by John McDonnell MP and Michael Meacher MP for a full Public Inquiry into the police and security services collusion with the Consulting Association.
Conference instructs the National Executive Committee to raise the issue of a Public Inquiry with our sponsored MPs and the TUC.
