No Genuine Negotiations for Blacklisted Workers

A group of major multinational companies that were involved in the recent blacklisting scandal announced a compensation scheme for those workers who were spied upon by the Consulting Association (which ran the blacklist and was funded by and reported to the construction companies).

A statement for the companies said that they 'all apologise for involvement with TCA and the impact that its database may have had on any individual worker'. The Blacklist Support Group, comprising former blacklisted workers, said 'forgive us if we do not crack open the champagne just yet...the only thing they regret is being caught'. The Blacklist Support Group later walked out of compensation talks describing the offer as 'not proposals designed for genuine negotiations' and vowed to continue with legal action against the companies.
