Sean Taylor – Blacklist No 1

Official video for the new campaign single for the Blacklist Support Group. Multinational building contractors have for decades compiled a secret database of union members in the UK construction industry.
Union members were denied work over many years because they had been stewards or safety reps on previous building projects. Contractors recently had to pay out over £50 million in compensation to workers on the blacklist after a sustained campaign involving direct action, strikes and demos – but they are still being denied work. The campaign will continue until those workers are back where they belong – organising on building sites. More information: www.hazards.org/blacklistblog, or on Facebook: Blacklist Support Group
