Secrets of the Consulting Association revealed at last.
Firms in the construction industry have been buying information on workers from some dodgy sounding company that calls itself The Consulting Association and using this information to create a blacklist of union activists, health and safety enthusiasts and other potential trouble makers. Whenever something like this is revealed the liberal left usually go into a spasm of self-righteousness. I don't know why, or what it is they expect. The blacklist has been a favoured device of the bosses ever since it became unfashionable to burn upstart workers out of their cottages. It's what they do. Management have a different project to the workers; different interests. I suppose that at the end of the day the only really effective way to fight back is for us all to be on the fucking blacklist.
