Balfour Beatty are the driving force behind the proposed 35% pay cut and de-skilling of electricians by the rogue employers withdrawing from the JIB National agreement.
Balfour Beatty has issued ‘Termination Notices to 1700 workers’, telling them that their contracts of employment will end on 7th December.
Balfour Beatty are offering new contracts at £10 p/h (compared to the current £16.25 p/h) – anyone refusing to sign the new contract will be sacked.
Balfour Beatty are one of the worst anti-union blacklisting firms in the construction industry – 6 companies within the Balfour Beatty group were issued Prohibition Notices by the ICO for their role in the illegal Consulting Association blacklist used against union reps.
THIS IS THE BIG ONE
The intention is to shut this building site by sheer force of numbers if need be
