Sparks fight continues

London sparks continued the fight against deskilling by again targeting offices of landlords Landsec, Land Securities Group, because NG Bailey has its maintenance contract.
NG Bailey is still looking to use the electrical service operator (ESO) grade to attack electricians' wages by employing unskilled labour.
As the protesting workers left the building, they warned that the campaign against ESO will be stepped up, just days after sparks walked off site in Whitby in North Yorkshire and blockaded a job in Cardiff. This will include protests at retail parks, where NG Bailey has jobs or maintenance contracts.
