Unofficial strike on Crossrail over bonus payments and blacklisting

Film length: 6:25

Rank and file electricians have had enough of being paid a third of what they’re worth on the biggest infrastructure project in the world, and walked off the job, shutting down 5 sites. They then occupied Laing O’Rourke’s offices in Oxford St, one of the contractors on Crossrail and a notorious blacklister. Now Laings are trying to move a democratically elected shop steward off the project. Time to get behind the sparks – mass picket on December 5.
