Take A bow Hull City Council and in particular Joyce Korczak for proposing the motion to ban companies that used the blacklist from securing council contracts (M Star Jan 5-6).
And well done to the Star for as usual being there to report it.
One slight comment, though.
I think it would only be fair to point out that there are other unions than the GMB involved in the fight against the disgusting practice of blacklisting.
Ucatt and Unite are also heavily involved and have been for decades, with Ucatt taking cases to the European courts.
To infer that the GMB is "leading" the anti-blacklisting campaign would, in my opinion, be to dismiss the involvement of the other unions and, with Ucatt being the main "specialist" construction union, might also be seen as dertrimental to our interests.
I don't wish to sound partisan, as any opponent to blacklisting is an ally to all concerned, but it does cut against the grain when other big players are not mentioned also.
