Strike Action Brewing Over the Laing O’Rourke ‘Contrick’

26-10-2004 02:10

Workers employed by construction giant Laing O’Rourke are refusing the company’s new pay and conditions deal. Under the new contract or ‘contrick’ as it has been renamed by workers, pay will be halved, bonuses will be decided by management, a day off must be planned 40 days in advance and holiday pay could be cut by £20 per day for each worker.

The GMB union has been barred off the site, in contravention of construction industry agreements.

This is a struggle which looks set to escalate and will need as much support as possible. Solidarity begins at home. Lets get on board!

Porton Down's commercial arm is of course Bioport, supplier of the ill-tested anthrax vaccine Cipro The anthrax attacks post-911 were with the particular Ames strain of weaponised anthrax that originates or was verified at Porton Down before being shipped back to the Merck company in New Jersey near to where the anthrax mailings were made
