UCATT wins £8.9 million for blacklisted workers

Construction union UCATT has confirmed that as a result of the High Court case into blacklisting that the union has won £8.9 million on behalf of the 156 cases it took for its blacklisted members.

The full amount could not be previously revealed due to the ongoing nature of the High Court action, which has now been concluded.

Brian Rye, Acting General Secretary, said: “This is the largest ever compensation payment won by this union on behalf of our members. The pay-outs members have received go a small way to compensating them for the hurt and loss that they and their families suffered over many years.”

The blacklisting by the Consulting Association was first revealed in 2009.

The UCATT members were represented by solicitors OH Parsons.

Mr Rye, added: “I would like to thank OH Parsons for their excellent work on behalf of our members.”
