You can’t describe how NOISY this demo was but it was part of  the right response to the ongoing bullying of sacked Unite Rep Frank Morris. Yesterday he was attacked by Security guards and today there was a big and noisy Unite turnout to raise the game. NSSN Rob williams and other steering committee members also attended to support it.

And just when some of them (including blacklisters who are based at this place) thought that was it for the day…

We all ended up at KIER in central London.  A lot of excellent support from passers by and cars who were shocked to hear about what happened and couldn’t understand why BILLIONS of pounds of tax payers money was being given to contracts that sacked workers and raised Health and Safety concerns.

There were two just as noisy protests against Kier at two awards ceremonies on Tuesday and Thursday. They involved  Sparks, Unite organisers, RMT executive members and many other trade unionists, including the NSSN.
