Commenting further on the Redfern report, Prospect Deputy General Secretary Mike Clancy said:“Today’s report does not criticise the current practices applied by the nuclear industry. These are very different from the prevailing culture which operated at the time of the cases investigated by Redfern. Lessons have been learned from the past, and that is welcome.
“We also welcome the fact Redfern has rejected any suggestion of unions colluding with management in covering up these practices of the past. The report accepts that ‘in general the unions acted in what they perceived to be their members’ best interests.’”
