Event description

Description

Blacklisting of construction workers has long been a curse of the industry and in recent years the 'dirty dealings' of leading companies through their undercover Consulting Agency have been widely exposed and they have condemned in the courts. But the issue is much more wiespread and the battle between big business and union activists is still to be won. This first North East conference is organised by Tyne & Wear CATUC and the Construction Safety Campaign, and sponsored by Unite North East, Yorkshire and Humberside Region. Speakers include:
* Dave Smith, prominent in the Blacklist Support Group and co-author of the New Internationalist published book Blacklisted.
* Lucy Parker, co-director of a film, Blacklist, looking at the wider implications, which is now in its final stages of production.
* Jennifer Luff, Durham University historian of politics and labour in Britain and the USA.
* Michael Newman, from Leigh Day Solicitors, who acted on behalf of some of the blacklisted workers.
* Graham Stevenson, former head of transport in Unite the Union.
* Tony Seaman, Teesside blacklisted worker.

Refreshments and lunch provided.
