Members of the GMB union, including one dressed as the Grim Reaper, staged a protest at Carillion’s stand at the Labour Party conference.
A union is taking legal action to seek compensation on behalf of workers it claims were blacklisted by one of the UK's biggest firms.
The GMB accused services giant Carillion of blacklisting hundreds of UK workers. The union published a report which it said pulled back the "curtain of secrecy".
It revealed the way firms like Carillion denied workers employment rights. Many workers were unaware that they had been blacklisted by companies, says the report. The GMB said it had instructed a law firm to seek compensation for its blacklisted members.
Paul Kenny, general secretary of the GMB, said: "This report pulls back the curtain of secrecy to give a glimpse as to the way employers like Carillion have illegally used their power and money to blacklist citizens and to deny them their rights to employment."
