Blacklisted: The Secret War Between Big Business + Union Activists

The authors of Blacklisted, one of the most important books of 2015, discuss the illegal strategies of construction companies to keep union activists away from their places of work, with tragic consequences for families and communities. Housmans are proud to welcome authors Dave Smith and Phil Chamberlain to discuss their book Blacklisted. Drawing on first-hand accounts of construction workers, Blacklisted reveals how, when major construction projects were unionised, those involved were unlawfully victimised. From the building sites to the High Court, this is a story of ordinary working people taking on some of the most powerful transnational companies in the world. The book also reveals how blacklisting extended beyond construction activists to environmental campaigners, journalists, politicians and academics, adding an international perspective with related stories from America and Europe.
