United Kingdom - Protest before Crossrail HQ - November 30, 2016

More than 100 construction workers staged a morning demonstration outside Crossrail's Canary Wharf headquarters. The protest was as a result of pay dispute between the parties. Organisers are calling for ‘meaningful negotiations’ with Crossrail in a bid to end the industrial row. The demonstrators came from the Union of Construction Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT) and Unite trade unions. A Unite officer for Crossrail said that it was a demonstration because the company refused to talk to the unions in regards to a second tier payment.
