They threaten, Unite blinks. ‘What a load of Ballots’!

Posted by jerryhicks4gs on December 4, 2011

              Well there’s a surprise, they threaten and we back off!                      ‘What a load of old Ballots’

We got the ballot result 81.6% in favour of strike action on BBES magnificent!
Then shamefully Unite when they were ‘threatened’ with an injunction, bottled it and have decided to re-ballot.

The new result won’t be announced until 6th January 2012.

It was said not all BBES workers were not balloted believed to be 100 or so even if these people vote it wouldn’t have changed the result.

There was also talk of going to ACAS, we ain’t even had a strike yet for good***s sake!

The Rank and File have told Unite what they think of that by carrying on regardless and called for a day of action on all BBES sites Wednesday 7th December.

In Glasgow on Saturday Rank and File sparks invaded an NG Bailey site, nice one!

Also in Scotland at a Rank and File meeting it was agreed following a vote to walk out on 5 BBES sites.

At the London Rank and File meeting on Saturday £311.17 was collected for siteworker and it was agreed to have mass protest at Blackfriars Wednesday 7th December, so spread the word and do your stuff lads.

Some other stuff that we know of ‘action and meetings’ ……………

Hartlepool: Monday the 5th December 7 pm planning meeting in the Bell Vue Club to discuss national walkout of BBES sites.

Hartlepool: Wed 7th Dec 6:30 am Heerema, Vic Dock, Northgate. Followed by a march to Greenland Road entrance.

Liverpool: Wed 7th Dec 6.30am Demo at St Cath’s Hospital Laurel Road CH42 0JA

Liverpool: Thurs 8th Dec 7.30pm Rank and File meeting, Friends Meeting House.

It’s time for action and time we did what the TUC advocated, ‘Civil disobedience’ before our agreement gets torn up in front of our very eyes.

We cannot let this happen it’s not on! We are calling on other unions to help in our struggle as well as occupy movement and students anyone fancy getting up a tower crane or chaining themselves to site gates.

The fight goes on it seems the only way to win this dispute is mass walkouts with solidarity action across the UK…………………………I guess we all knew that anyway!
