The dispute over the sacking of 28 union members on the Crossrail project over health and safety concerns is now costing British taxpayers £30 million a DAY in missed targets and delays to the tunnel – that’s how much BFK (Bam,Ferrovial and Kier) are prepared to spend on keeping trade unions off the project while running an illegal blacklist. They are now resorting to violence and intimidation to try and break the pickets – but sacked steward Frank Morris comes up with an inspired method of standing up to the bullies.
