Who speaks for the construction worker?

Those working at the sharp end of the UK demolition and construction industry enjoy very little in the way of job security. They are required to work in challenging and even dangerous conditions amidst an often toxic work climate. Many have been pushed into self-employment so they can be picked up and put down by employers and agencies. And many also have to fund their own training to keep pace with constantly-shifting regulation governing competence. Little wonder the sector finds itself in the midst of a mental health and suicide pandemic.

But while company owners and senior managers gather regularly at industry events, there is no central forum through which the industry’s three million workers can make their voices heard.
