TRANSPORT union T&G has started a lobbying campaign at Westminster to highlight fears about the blacklisting of workers in electrical contracting.
The union is writing to its 70-strong group of MPs to force the issue up the political agenda following several allegations of blacklisting of members of the T&G-EPIU's electricians' branch.
John Rowse, the union's national power and engineering secretary, said: 'This is about bringing to the attention of MPs some of the employment practices that have been going on in our industry, specifically against some individuals in our union.
'Our members have been concerned about this for some time. Now more then ever, with the Olympic construction programme about to begin, we need to highlight some of the things going on.'
The union hopes to secure an adjournment debate on blacklisting practices with MPs' support.
