Escalation of #Crossfail campaign over health and safety sackings

16 March 2015

A worker who was sacked for raising health and safety concerns on the Bond Street site of the £15bn publicly funded Crossrail project has decided to step up the campaign with a daily presence at the site he was sacked from.

Dan Collins’ decision to step up the campaign came after a very positive public response to a protest at the site which brought rush-hour traffic to a halt on Oxford Street in the heart of central London on Friday 13 March.

And hundreds of commuters took leaflets from campaigners at Bond Street tube station during the morning rush-hour on Monday 16 March.

Dan is appealing for supporters who wish to join him for the daily/ protest leafleting sessions on Oxford Street to drop by the site which is opposite the exit to Bond Street station from 7.30am.

A protest is also being held at the Construction News Specialist Awards on Wednesday 18 March, at 6pm at the London Hilton hotel on Park Lane, W1.

Some of the UK’s largest construction companies are shortlisted for awards including Balfour Beatty who have multi-million pound contracts on Crossrail.

It’s time these companies addressed the health and safety concerns on Crossrail, it’s time to reinstate the sacked electricians!
