CROSSRAIL: A CULTURE OF FEAR AND SPYING
The inquest into Rene Tkacik’s death who was killed on Crossrail is taking place at St. Pancras Coroners court Camley Street. Camden NC1 4PP. Monday 23rd February at 9:30 start
We are holding a Silent Vigil outside as a mark of respect, we organised a protest outside the site when he was killed, and surprize ! Management were hostile. They have learnt that we intend holding a vigil, I think by the HSE, they’ve contacted the Coroner, seems their concerned ? Wouldn’t like to disappoint them would seem a shame, were asking people to turnout and support this. Remember Frank Morris was removed for raising Safety issues in 2012 reinstated 2013 following a year long campaign.
A leaked report ” MIND SAFETY “commissioned by Crossrail highlighted ignoring Safety issues raised, Bullying workers. Near misses of the type which killed Rene had been reported. Workers too scared to report near misses & injuries for fear of being sacked, is reported in their own REPORT !
John McDonnell MP demanded urgent action 21st May 2014 in letter to Gov’t.
