Carillion Urgent Information For Specialist Contractors  


Carillion Crisis - "Enough's Enough It's Time For Truth"
Please Sign The Petition - See Below
Improve The Procurement And Payment Culture In Construction


So, Carillion have gone into liquidation and the Government are doing their incompetent best to deal with the fall out, and cover their tracks. Thousands of lives are going to be impacted and we will be working hard to help Specialist Subcontractors caught up in this mess.

Whatever happens it’s time for truth!

It's time that the government and every single decent individual working in the construction industry, whatever trade or profession, said "enough's enough!"

It's time to stop ignoring the payment abuse, and the shameful and degrading way that some of the big players treat their subcontractors and suppliers!

Every right-thinking person in construction knows what a dire state of affairs we have, but the government and others turn a blind eye to what is going on right under their nose.

Those that have the power to change things are choosing to ignore the shameful way that professionals, Sub-Contractors, and suppliers go unpaid or under paid, for work properly and professionally carried out.

Lack Of Payment Is Crippling The Industry

Millions of pounds has gone unpaid, and continues to go unpaid, often forcing the supply chain to fight disputes and contest onerous claims, as Carillion and other Main Contractors unfairly retain monies paid to them by their clients and you the tax payer!, have carried out payment surveys, given evidence to a Parliamentary inquiry and appeared on local and national radio. And despite Government and others claims to the contrary, the payment situation has gone from bad to worse, and the Supply Chain Payment Charter has been branded a "Dismal Failure".

Sometimes it takes a big name to fail to make people sit up and look at things happening in the industry in a different light. We are not interested in the politics of procurement, we are interested in protecting Specialist Sub-Contractors.

Enough's enough, let's all work together for real truth and real change. So, here is what we would like you to help us with;
