 Construction workers win payouts for ‘blacklisting’

Workers who say they were blacklisted by construction companies have won millions in compensation after a long-running legal battle finally ended.

The union Unite has reached a settlement with construction firms that will mean 256 workers share more than £10m in compensation.

The amount will depend on factors such as loss of income.

In some cases, the blacklist included details of worker’s political views, competence, and trade union activities.

The list had been used by dozens of construction firms to vet those applying for work on building sites.

Last month, the GMB and Ucatt unions and a law firm reached a separate settlement with construction companies in the blacklisting scandal.

That claim was settled for a total of £5.4m plus millions in legal costs, with some members due to receive between £25,000 and £200,000, the union said.

The settlement with the GMB, Ucatt and law firm CGR was reached on 29 April but could not be announced until the Unite case was settled.
