That this House is deeply concerned with rapidly deteriorating industrial relations occurring on the Costain-led ATC consortium tunnel fit-out contract which forms a key part of Crossrail; is dismayed that construction unions are being denied proper access to the site and its workforce; notes that workers have been denied payments for entire shifts due to failures in the fingerprint recognition system; is further concerned that the flagship project has totally substandard welfare facilities with workers having to walk miles to go to the toilet; is alarmed that workers have reported being required to work until they are physically exhausted and to undertake tasks which are beyond them; is concerned that following peaceful and orderly demonstrations management have undertaken covert surveillance and recording of workers which raises concerns about blacklisting and is in breach of data protection laws; is concerned that demonstrators have been threatened with being run over by a lorry driver and security guards employed on Crossrail; is further dismayed that the Costain-led ATC consortium has refused to conduct an investigation into this incident; and calls on the client, Crossrail and Costain to give union representatives proper access to the site and to fully resolve these industrial relations problems
