STUC on Proposed Blacklisting Compensation Scheme

October 10th 2013

Speaking in response to the proposal from several companies to set up a Construction Workers Compensation Scheme for Blacklisted Workers, Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary Grahame Smith said:

“This is encouraging news and is a vindication of the campaigns run by the unions on behalf of members and former members. Clearly the Compensation Scheme proposed will need to meet the responsibilities owed to blacklisted workers both in terms of the scale of compensation offered and to cover the variety of circumstances and effects of each case. We welcome the apparent commitment to engage and negotiate the terms of the scheme with black listed workers and their union representatives. This will be key to achieving an agreeable outcome.”
