A long running case concerning claims of ‘contemporary blacklisting’ on Crossrail will conclude next Monday (20 March) with a statement in open court.

The case concerns Unite member Daniel Collins. Mr Collins was employed by the Costain/Skanska joint venture via an agency on the Bond Street Crossrail station project in February 2015, when he raised health and safety concerns. Soon afterwards he was told to leave the project.

Mr Collins made a series of subject access requests and learnt that his information had been shared among a number of contractors and agencies.

The companies involved in the case were Crossrail, Costain, Skanska, T Clarke and NG Bailey. All of the companies deny the allegations.

Unite national officer for construction Jason Poulter said: “Unite is totally dedicated to defending the jobs, pay and conditions of its members. The union will never take a backward step in fighting for justice on their behalf.”

The statement in open court will be read out at a hearing on Monday (20 March), in front of a judge of the media and communications list (King’s Bench Division) at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London, WC2A
