6.30am on 24 August saw the second protest outside the Crown House site opposite St Pancras station in London. Crown House want to tear up the national agreement so that they can cut wages.

We spoke to some of the sparks who were urging Crown House workers to join the union. These workers were fed up with how they were treated in the construction industry. One said he was fed-up with managers who did not understand the work that the sparks did.

Read the pamphlet: How the Sparks Beat the Besna: Construction electricians and the Joint Industrial Board. 2.50 including postage from www.leftbooks.co.uk or ring 020 8988 8789
