But at construction sites in Nottinghamshire and Kent there is a campaign for jobs. Some 400 workers protested outside a Nottinghamshire power station site on Monday.
That is for the good. What is less clear is why the unions have chosen to focus on the question of whether foreign workers are on the site.
