Kier, along with five other contractors ordered by the Office of Fair Trading to pay millions of pounds for bid-rigging, will find out the fate of its appeal against the fines at 4pm today (Friday). The Competition Appeals Tribunal will hand down its decision to Kier, John Sisk, Bowmer & Kirkland, Thomas Vale, Ballast Nedam and Haymills, which were fined £41.7m in total. Kier (led by chief executive Paul Sheffield, pictured) got the largest fine, being ordered to pay £17.8m, which it has argued to have reduced.
