Thanks to Roy Bentham, Tony Seaman and the lads at Unite's Liverpool and Teeside branches for kick starting the fighting fund for the legal work to expose Paul Raby, Gerry Harvey and all the other blacklisters at Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Limited (BBESL).

I've just learned that the entire electrical workforce (some 400 plus) at BBESL's Capenhurst project have passed a motion to support my claim against their employer and collections will start this week. It is hoped that the mechanical (some 200 plus) will follow shortly.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen.

On 1 October 2016 Sky News reported that Carillion's Chief Executive, Philip Green had been in talks with Teresa May about a role advising her on 'responsible business'.

Sky News Report - 1 October 2016 

The report also revealed that Mr Green had been advising David Cameron on 'corporate social responsibility' during his tenure.

This beggars belief!

Now Carillion's position...

"Crown House, the only Carillion subsidiary to use the Consulting Association's database, stopped doing so back in 2004. The practice was proactively stopped because the HR manager responsible for checking the database believed it was wrong." a total pack of lies.

I set out all the facts and evidence disproving their lies in my three letters to Philip Green and the other Carillion non-executive directors in January, March and April 2016.

You can view all three letters and the evidence HERE 

This was ignored by Mr Green, all the other Carillion non-execs, and the politicians who were copied in on this (see below).

This was recently highlighted to my MP, David Hanson in October 2016, who subsequently wrote to the Prime Minister highlighting the facts. The PM responded in late October 2016, stating that she had referred this to the business department.

Over three months has now passed and no further response has been received to date. David has therefore submitted a formal written question to the Secretary of State for Business, which can be viewed HERE 

Okay, so I expect nothing less from the Tories who are quite happy to turn a blind eye to Carillion's lies, but look who else was copied in on the correspondence over a year ago and did nothing about it.

Pete Wishart - Chairman of the Scottish Affairs Select Committee
Jim Eadie - Infrastructure and Capital Investments Committee
John McDonnell - Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer

Steve Mogford - Carillion Non-exec
Andrew Dougal - Carillion Non-exec
Alison Horner - Carillion Non-exec
Ceri Powell - Carillion Non-exec
Keith Cochrane - Carillion Non-exec

Welcome to my website, where you can learn everything about the construction industry blacklisting. From the blatant abuse by the companies and agencies involved, to the cover up by Unite back in 2005/2006 to protect their financial arrangements with the blacklisters.

This website is extensive and covers 12 years work, so please start with the 10 minute version at the Crowd Fund Appeal, which was set up for the preliminary hearings back in October 2016.

It provides a concise summary of the last twelve years, including links to the relevant BBC News, Radio 4 and Guardian articles.

You can then return here and either scroll down the page, or access the different sections via the Index

Key evidence on prolific blacklister, Gerry Harvey was specifically highlighted by Regional Employment Judge, Barry Clarke in his judgment.


This is Gerry Harvey. He's not smiling now.

Other very notable Balfour Beatty senior managers and directors involved are:

Vikki Skene - Leaves Balfour Beatty after ten years to join Galliford Try only a few months before the preliminary hearing.

Jemma Wilkinson - Also leaves Balfour Beatty after ten years to join Pricewaterhouse Coopers only a few months before the preliminary hearing.

Alastair Green - National Labour Manager also leaves Balfour Beatty after twenty two years to join Imtech only a few weeks before the preliminary hearing.

Paul Raby - Still blacklisting.

Regional Employment Judge for Wales, Mr Barry Clarke in his judgment, issued today.

"Mr Wainwright is permitted to pursue a regulation 5 claim against Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Limited without restriction".

The full hearing will be listed at Mold Crown Court, being the exact same venue of the first Shrewsbury 24 trials back on 27 June 1973.

ICO Reopens Blacklisting Investigation

The blacklisters made a legal application around eight weeks ago in an attempt to prevent me from sending all my new evidence to the Information Commissioner. They failed miserably.

Guardian Article - Sunday 4 December 2016 

October preliminary hearing judgment due anytime now. 

I'll name, shame and publish everything as soon as I can.

Preliminary hearings for the new blacklisting claims will be held at the Cardiff Employment Tribunal on 26th and 27th October 2016, in which the respondents will attempt to have my claims struck out.

In response to this, I have presented a witness statement and evidence that will prove that Balfour Beatty and nine of their preferred recruitment agencies suppliers are at the heart of contemporary blacklisting in the UK.

These documents will become public documents on the 26 October 2016 and will therefore be available for anyone and everyone to download and draw their own conclusions.
