CONTRACTS to build the new super-speed railway linking London to the north have been handed to a host of firms caught up in the blacklisting scandal.
Ministers announced £6.6 billion of contracts yesterday for building infrastructure for the first phase of the High Speed 2 project, which will run between London and Birmingham.
The government said the project could support 16,000 jobs. The TUC welcomed the news as a “shot in the arm for Brexit Britain.”
But all of the contracts have been awarded to partnerships including construction giants who illegally maintained a database of trade union activists. Via a shady bosses’ club called the Consulting Association, some builders were denied jobs for decades.
The firms apologized for their actions in the High Court — and paid out millions to workers.
One blacklister, Carillion, won two contracts worth £1.4 billion, jointly with fellow blacklister Kier and French firm Eiffage.
