Today, Unite the union and the BAM Ferrovial Kier joint venture (BFK) are pleased to announce that they have successfully concluded matters between them in relation to BFK’s joint venture on the Crossrail projects.

BFK acknowledge that the conclusion of the EIS contract could have been handled better and BFK and Unite have agreed to work together to continue the provision of transparent working practices including safeguarding the right of workers to choose whether or not to join a trade union.

BFK and Unite agree that there has been no contravention of the Blacklisting Regulations on the BFK Crossrail projects.

BFK and Unite are committed to improving ways of working together.

The above allows BFK and Unite to further build upon their working relationship for the good of all involved and both parties look forward to working with each other in the future.
